Mom found this walk on the Internet.
This is the photo on the information board in the car park,
as you can see its clearly marked
You are here, she also had the printed off map from the web site with her, but as we have got lost on other walks had taken this photo just in case, as it was more detailed.
Its a good tip if you come across a board with a map of where you are, take a photo, you can then look back at it on your camera and zoom in to hopefully find your way back!!
Yes you guessed it we got lost,
two maps and still got lost!!!
Dads answer was well we just went off track for a while, yer OK!!
The woods looked lovely with the sun shining though
Rocks to climb on
Come and look at this
It has a disused Quarry, the camera couldn't get all the rock in when we got this close, it must have been 87 feet high by the Frankie scale mom didn't like getting to close to it, she's funny about things like that!
So why she has The Grand Canyon on her number one list to see I have no idea!
The following information was on the notice board at the start of the walk
Grinshill stone built Shrewsbury
Some of Shropshires finest buildings, churches and bridges have been built from the high-quality white sandstone of Grinshill's quarries. Many of them are in Shrewsbury, including, New St Chad's, St Marys and St Julian's church, the English and Welsh Bridges, Shrewsbury library and the Music Hall.
Arguably the most impressive structure is Lord Hill's Column which is taller than Nelson's Column in London. Unlike its counterpart the lions at the feet of Lord hill's Column are also carved from stone.
Here are the building

This is interesting
All the soil has been washed away from the roots!!
There was lots of things to look at though the trees
We passed an animal rescue centre, mom didn't like the rock face, well I didn't like walking past here.
The dogs started barking loudly and it worried me so much, that we had to walk faster, I do hope folks will come and give them a forever home.
Mom has a nick name for me. Mister Nosey!! I'm not nosey I just like to see things, if there's a gate I want to know whats on the other side, what wrong with that.
I also like to look at folks when I'm walking, most of them smile and I've had some laugh!! others think I might go for them but I am very friendly and only want to play.
The Village church
All Saints Church Clive,
made out of the sandstone from the Quarry
You can see the two different sandstone colours
They're doing a good job of looking after the local wildlife
It really is a big church for a village
It had a bowl of water for passing dogs
Time to move on, to the top of the hill
I'm now standing 630 feet above sea level
That's what it says on the plaque, all around the edge it gives you information of the what hills you can see
There's also this thing at the top, at night aircraft will see it and won't crash into the hill!!
Its green, as its solar powered

Now I've been on loads of walks
but we agree that this walk deserves
The Four Paws up award.
There's a web site so we will be emailing this one
It's well worth a visit if you are passing this way, there's is a pub that you can include on route, if only we could have worked out how it get to it!
I'll be coming back here again.
Here's the link to the PDF that mom printed out.
The Kangaroo facts are funny but we don't believe that do we Boys and Girls!!
Don't know why they picked a Kangaroo!! why not a Badger or fox, might just ask when we email them my award ;)
Till next time
See Yea George xxx
