Head over towards Shrewsbury, Shropshire’s county town, Charles Darwin’s birthplace and home of Shrewsbury Flower Show. Don’t miss The British Ironworks sculpture park as you leave Oswestry. This fascinating major metal attraction will definitely surprise you.
You could make another detour to climb up to Kynaston’s cave at Nesscliffe– the lair of Shropshire’s most famous and, possibly, only highwayman!
The River Severn meanders through Shropshire and a must visit is St Peter’s timber framed church perched on the river bank at Melverley. This little church has been welcoming pilgrims since 1406 and continues to do so today.
If unusual gardens appeal, check out the opening days of Brownhill House garden. Set on a very steep hillside overlooking the river Perry, this garden is set on a 45 degree slope and has been a labour of love for nearly 45 years for Yoland and Roger Brown.
Places to go, things to see and what’s on:
