Welsh Marcher lordship, crossed by the River Clun, a tributary of the Teme.

The castle of Clun was southeast of Montgomery, northwest of Wigmore and NNW of Ludlow.

The lordship was first held, in the Conqueror’s reign, by the family of Say and later passed to the Fitzalans, Earls of Arundel. In 1536 it became the southwestern corner of Shropshire.
