A small town more the size if a village, north-west of Shrewsbury
If you are not up on your Roman Numerals its
The Walk is around 2 miles
Starting at the pub
The Admiral Benbow
The book tells us to cross the road
The first thing we come to is Steps, note Tess is not with me on this photo, because mom thought the one with the two of us was more of an outtake! but I'm going to show you anyway.
Its looks ok, but see how Tess looks like she is balancing the lamp post on her nose lol!! now look back at my photo and the lamp post has gone! We own up and I have said this before, we are always on are leads.
Ok lets get on with the walk.
First through the church yard that has the remains of a Norman castle built in 1155
Time to move on
It was a cold night and the frost was still on the ground
This poor goose had a frozen breakfast
Out of the church yard and a walk down the road, always doing what the signs say
"George why do you have to do as the signs say?"
"Because we'd all be in a pickle if we didn't!"
That round building is the old toll house, you would have had to pay money to get across the bridge years ago.
"George, that sign says there is a bull in this field!! is it safe"
"Well it dosen't say you can't walk across it, I'll let you and dad check it out, mom and me will be right behind you."
Ok so we didn't stop right behind them, dad went off looking for the bridge that was on the map, while mom thought why walk all that way to walk all the way back if the bridge is no longer there.
What happened mom was busy telling me she can't see a bridge and not looking where she was going and we both ended up in deep mud!! she was laughing at me not thinking that she was sinking in it.
Dad didn't find the bridge so we had to walk all the way back to pick up the walk on the other side.
We didn't see a bull. so luckly we didn't end up in a pickle
Back across the cattle grid
Passing the black and white house.
Back on the right track, on the other side of the stream
we saw loads of intresting things
so I'll shut up and show you the photos
Not Tess's best shot, but its the first time she got her head down a rabbit hole.
Look at the shadow on the left is it a horse? no its mom taking the photo!
The four of us together
Back to where we started hour and a half later.
The fire place inside The Admiral Benbow.
Note the lovely real fire and us two missing!
We were dumped in the car!!! they didn't even ask the landlady if we could go in
"The Cheek of it"
"They" as in mom and dad thought we where just to muddy. Do we look muddy?
"Hey mom and dad check out your boots and see who has the most mud on them. Oh and there was a bridge dad just didn't go far enough, we saw it when we were walking on the other side
Have a Good Week
See Yea George xxx
