Description:
The Shropshire Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty The hills, rolling farmland, woods and river valleys of this varied and special landscape are rich in geology and wildlife and ingrained with heritage. Off the beaten track and tranquil, this is a living, working place, loved by locals and visitors alike for its quality of environment, for walking and activities of all levels, and for relaxation and inspiration. South Shropshire has amazing views across heavenly English Countryside. These are the real "Blue Remembered Hills" that Housman wrote about. A landscape of green golden valleys rising to dramatic hills and moorlands. A hidden history of Marcher Lords - long since dead, concealed pagan rites and legends, castles and tiny hamlets all waiting to be found. No wonder this is officially an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Within South Shropshire are:- Shropshire's gastronomic capital Ludlow, the Alpine like setting of Church Stretton, Bishops Castle famed for it's microbrewery, Cleobury Mortimer, Craven Arms and Clun, immortalised by A.E.Housman. Each couldn't be more different or distinctive. Real shopping in proper shops, lively street markets, antique markets, specialist food shops, art and craft galleries - all give retail therapy Shropshire style. Storybook castles at Clun, Ludlow and Stokesay - a 13th Century fortified manor house said to be so beautiful that when attacked no-one could bring themselves to destroy it Extract from A Shropshire Lad by A.E. Housman Into my heart an air that kills From yon far country blows: What are those blue remembered hills, What spires, what farms are those? That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, The happy highways where I went And cannot come again. www.jimroberts.co.uk www.flickriver.com/photos/jimborobbo/popular-interesting/ All my photos and images are copyrighted to me although you are welcome to use them for non commercial purposes as long as you give credit to myself.
