This post is part of Maxmoms "Unity in Diversity" please take a look, its not all about football there recipes, photo's and write ups on other blogs about the countys that are playing.
England are playing Slovenia, its a big one, if they lose they're out.
Last time it was the counties, and now I will tell you a little bit about my home county.
I was born and breed here in a place called "The Clee Hills" not far from where this piccy was taken. Mom and dad didn't think they would be able to pick me up because it had been snowing on and off of a couple of weeks.
This is a map of the county and how it is broken up into boroughs, South Shropshire is where the Clee Hills are.
Mom was born in Bridgnorth, what's left of the Castle tower leans at an angle of 15 degrees, that's greater than the leaning tower of Pisa.
Not far and in the same borough is Much Wenlock.
the following quote was taken from here
"It was in 1850 that the first ever Olympian Games were held here in Much Wenlock. The brainchild of Dr Brookes, the Games were originaly designed "to promote the moral, physical and intellectual improvement of the inhabitants of the Town and neighbourhood of Wenlock".
Shrewsbury is the County town
Wem in North Shropshire
The Sweet Pea was first grown here by Henry Eckford in the 18th century, and is still celebrated each year with the Wem Sweet Pea Festival.
The Borough of Oswestry was a vital frontier town it has an ancient hill-fort said to be the birthplace of Queen Guinevera
Wilfred Owen was born in Oswestry, he is referred to as "The Greatest World War One poet".
That's just a whistle stop tour of the County, Wait I here you say, what about
Telford, if England win and that's a big IF, the post will be about my borough.
See Yea George xxx
