Beautiful Countryside

The River Severn enters England from Wales and makes its way through Shropshire on towards it's final exit further south.

Here the river is bending it's way through Shropshire, countryside that inspired the likes of Ralph Vaughan-Williams, composer of "On Wenlock Edge" and AE Housman author of "A Shropshire Lad" and "On Wenlock Edge".

In fact just the otherside of the ridge is Much Wenlock, so I guess you are currently looking at Wenlock Edge!

Shropshire Sunset

Taken in mid August one evening. This was taken from Lilleshall and looks north over the Shropshire plains towards Cheshire.

If you're touring England, Scotland and Wales then definately stop in Shropshire as you pass, however it's not a place to travel a long way and spend a lot of money to see!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Countryside, a few historic and interesting towns.

    The River Severn runs through Shrewsbury on it's way to through various other villages, such as Buildwas (silent w), Ironbridge and then then out of Shropshire south.(sic) Perhaps you should ask another person to do your proof reading

    Thanks for sharing your tips! I'm sorry I missed Bildwas Abbey when I was in the area - it looks beautiful. I also loved your panoramic pic of the river!

    Great pictures! The only thing missing from the countryside along the Severn is a Corgi to round up those lost sheep;-\
