A Shropshire Walk

For the last few days of July and the first couple of August, Judith and I went on a walking holiday in the Shropshire hills, organised by Contours Walking Holidays . We picked the holiday because the walking didn't seem too strenuous, with average distances about 10 miles a day. It was rather more 'up and down' than we had anticipated though, so we got a good work-out!
Shropshire, which neither of us have visited before, is a beautiful and relatively quiet area - in five days of walking the Shropshire Way we met two other people!
Bishops Castle was one of the stops along the route. It has two brew-pubs; our favourite was the Three Tuns at the top of the High Street.
The walk included a visit to Bury Ditches, an Iron Age hill fort, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. I loved the place, and the quiet.
