So there you have it...............

2011 hasn't been a good year for travels, what with a poor summer weather-wise and ill health.

However, I have just uploaded a few pictures from Herefordshire and Shropshire, and added a whole lot more to the page on Wales.



I was about to put this picture into the last article, on Shropshire, when I suddenly realised this village is actually in Herefordshire.

So here it is, in a post all to itself!


Villager and visitor alike know Leintwardine is an historic gem surrounded by the Shropshire hills, the rivers of North Herefordshire and the unspoilt magnificence of Wales.

On the way to North Wales, you cross over this very pretty bridge, right in the heart of the village.


Just had an amazing trip to North Wales, and where I stay - right on the Wales-England border, it's just a short hop over the border into Shropshire. So it seemed rude not to go and poke around one or two of the little twons in that area.

Unfortunately, I didn't have much time to take pictures, but anyway, this is what I did get......

Bishops Castle

This tiny little town, built on the side of a hill, has really only one main road, with a few side turnings. It does, however, have some interesting buildings.

Several of the houses are painted in bright colours. Apparently this was the first to be given the rainbow treatment.

House on Crutches Museum
A 16th century timber-framed house with a rich collection of exhibits depicting local history and rural life in South West Shropshire. This unusual and attractive building stands just to the left of the town hall, up a little cobbled alleyway
