After a completely torrid few weeks (months?), I finally got away for a couple of days. My destination? England’s very own Shropshire.
It’d been a while since my last weekend away, and in contrast to my usual choices (most often Copenhagen, Denmark) - this time I found myself a little less far afield. The weekend was a scorcher, and Shropshire - located near the Welsh border - proved to be the perfect place to spend some uncharacteristically beautiful April days.
I’d only ever been to the county once before - and that was for a brief visit to Shrewsbury for the “League One 2018 Play-Off Semi Finals”, and whilst there was a sting to the result that day - I still left with some very fond impressions. Whilst I wasn’t exactly sure what I expected this time, I can definitively state that any expectations were shattered: it was incredible.
My only regret? Not taking my dSLR; I haven’t really touched a “proper” camera in about 7 years - and whilst I was tempted this time, I ultimately decided it was a bit too much hassle. Oh how I regret that now…
Whilst I may not have taken my dSLR though, I did manage to take a few photos with my phone - and there’s a small selection attached to the header of this post. However if you’re interested in the valleys of Church Stretton, the fields of Craven Arms, and the castle of Ludlow, then check out the full gallery over at Flickr.
