Weekend Away in South Shropshire

Every now and again we take Betsy, our caravan, away for a few days. We don’t go far, just far enough to get us away from the farm so the OH can relax and switch off. Anyway, last weekend we took the van down to Craven Arms.

We didn’t do much on Friday except pop into the local Discovery Centre. I was a tad disappointed with it to be honest. Too geared up for infant/young junior school kids. Not enough ‘meat’ for the older/adult person.

Anyway, on Saturday we popped into Bridgnorth, Ian had never been and it had been at least 6 years since I last went. It was a lovely day and we had lunch at Peepos near the North Gate. I was also lucky enough to bump into my friends Matty and Sarah from Bridgnorth Bouncy Castles. They had some of their bouncy bits down in Severn Park.

Then on Sunday we popped over to the Stiperstones. It’s been years since I last went up there and Ian had never been at all.

You really don’t have to go far in Shropshire to see some stunning scenery.

I’m actually not sure which of the rock outcrops is the Devil’s Chair. I saw some Stone Chats too but couldn’t get a photo of them.
