A lingering look at Shropshire

Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is all about Rural Living.


I was going to post a view from my new house, but then I thought it would be nice to show off a bit more of the beautiful Shropshire landscape which has kept me company during the past four and a half years. Just a couple of miles walk from the town you find yourself with views like these. I have to say I will miss them. The Ent-like trees, the dead straight hedgerows, the sheep in the fields, the tracks of tractors, the black and white timber-framed houses and the hills. Shropshire is a beautiful rural county and I think this image captures its beauty.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I might start a new blog when I get there. Purely Cornish. But I would hate to lose many of my regulars. I do have a rural view though, that much IS true. And if I walk about 300 yards I also have a sea view 😀

  1. Just dipping my nose in to say Griff Rhys Jones was in Ludlow and biked up Long Mynd on ‘Great Britain’ the other night. Brought back memories 🙂 Have a good weekend! Not sure if you’re back down to Cornwall again? Hugs, Jude! Almost there…

    1. I caught the end of that but missed him in Ludlow. Yes down south at the moment for a couple of days – lovely and sunny at the moment so we are off to explore, then find somewhere fishy for lunch perhaps 😀

  2. Beautiful Jude…you will miss Shropshire, and I’ve so enjoyed all your blog posts about this wonderful corner of England. But I bet you can’t wait to move to Cornwall…your dream! Have a lovely weekend, hope you’re almost there… 🙂 xx
