Shropshire, maybe one of England's quiet counties but it was a great place to grow up as a child. Don't be deceived; there's still plenty to see and do. Shropshire has over 90 places to visit - historic houses and castles with beautiful gardens, the famous Ironbridge (the town that started the Industrial Revolution)
Shropshire has many traditional market towns including gourmet Ludlow and the county town of Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury almost surrounded by the River Severn and birthplace of Charles Darwin, is a medieval delight of black and white buildings.
Unspoilt, unrushed and tranquil.
The Shropshire landscape reflects the fact that Shropshire is geographically unique and creates the special habitats that ensures that Shropshire wildlife is so diverse. All this adds up to making Shropshire great walking country.
So whether you're out and about on Shropshire Hills, by the Meres and Mosses or strolling along with the Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals you can guarantee the Shropshire air will rejuvenate and restore you.
I spent my childhood building dens in the woodlands, learning to swim in the rivers and lakes and just having fun camping in a field with cousins. Definitely a part of England that doesn't get over populated with tourists, that is probably why it has kept it's charm. When your next in England, make an effort to go on a walk, or have a cuppa tea in one of the gorgeous country towns. Explore the history of this area or just take in the magnificent views. A part of the world I am proud to call home.
I would have love to take this flight over Shropshire, instead I have found this amazing video ( visitshropshire ) that shows the beauty of this quiet county of England. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
