Here’s a shot of the two bridges at Atcham, near Shrewsbury, reflected in the River Severn. The first bridge was built between 1769 and 1771 by John Gwynn, who also built English Bridge in Shrewsbury and Magdalen Bridge in Oxford. Today, it is used as a footpath after it was replaced by a second bridge built in 1929 to carry the former A5 over the river. I really like the way the bright blue sky is reflected in the water, highlighting the classical arches of what is a very elegant structure.
Lovely splash of yellow in the Quarry in Shrewsbury today, overlooked by St Chad’s Church. I spied this view when I was in town yesterday, but the sun went in just as I was about to take a picture and it didn’t come back out again. Not to be thwarted, I made a return trip and finally got the shot I wanted.
Coming soon - our 2020 Shrewsbury Calendar will be available to buy through our website and from outlets across the town!
Day 25 of the #bnbphotochallenge19 is the artwork etc that we use to decorate the B&B. I am very lucky that my Dad is a very talented artist and member of @rbsagallery
This means our walls are filled with original art. Unfortunately the lights not good to photograph them but you get the idea!
I also have a bit of a pumpkin knitting habit, so they keep multiplying much like the tribbles in Star Trek. Dad currently has an exhibition at Himley Hall near Dudley running until 19th May

Here’s a sight to brighten a dull spring day - a lamb among the daffodils at Shelve, near the Stiperstones. Grey days like today are not the best for taking pictures, but they provide a good opportunity to tidy up our image library. This particular picture hasn’t seen the light of day for a long while, but we felt it deserved another airing!
Bluebells are currently in flower all over Shropshire, and yesterday saw me heading for Chempshill Coppice, near Worfield. This pretty woodland always provides a fantastic display of blue, and this year is certainly no exception.
What I liked most about #stokesayCastle was the audio guide;
A) it was free B) it literally gives you a walking tour of the grounds inside and out with ample details and atmospheric explanations
The only room for improvement would be if it somehow makes it more engaging, say when you're in a group, so that since listening to your audio set hinders you from talking or discussing amongst each other what's happening... #VisitShropshire#TheCelebrationProject

It was #earthday yesterday and here at the B&B we do our best to be sustainable; buying local, using mostly eco friendly cleaning products, recycling etc. As I’ve said before my passion is wildlife and I love that we’ve created an environment that is so wildlife friendly.
We have lots of butterflies in our wildflower meadow. Today I spotted the first red admiral of the year. I’ve also seen brimstones, small tortoiseshell, orange tipped, meadow browns and peacock butterflies - and that’s just today! #bnbphotochallenge19#butterflies
Home for the week 🤗.
We are in beautiful Shropshire in a @hoseasons lodge. Absolutely stunning 😍
We are here til Friday and already feel incredibly chilled. It's exactly what we needed after a few hard weeks and just to restore ourselves a little.
We are planning on having a lovely brekkie everyday followed by some exploring and walking and then chills back here at the cabin and bbq or home cooked food in the evening.
Just what life ordered 💕💑

Sunrise today saw me on the ramparts of Old Oswestry hill fort in north Shropshire. The 4am start was soon forgotten as the sun came up and highlighted the carpets of bluebells on the eastern side of this ancient fortification. Old Oswestry was built during the Iron Age and is recognised as one of the best-preserved hill forts in Britain. Well worth a visit!
As the UK experiences it’s hottest weekend of the year, people flock to beaches and hoping to escape the heat. ⠀

A beautiful child-free anniversary break at @olddowntonlodge. Absolutely stunning, amazing food and wonderful staff. It's only been 4 years of marriage but a new garden, house renovation and 2 beautiful girls have filled our lives in that time. How lucky am I?!
