I was standing there, still, alone and my heart opened wide and I tried to engrave this fantastic countryside forever into my memory.
After a nice meal and good sleep, the adventure with SBS started and whilst I never had seen her in real, she is just as I had imagined her! She showed me round the Ridge, showed me the Devil's Seat, explained all the particular things about this fantastic spot of countryside and -lucky me!- I am even now the proud owner of a book she has written which explains it all in detail!
We went to Bishops Castle, cute, nice little town:
Was that the ladies jail one day?
This lovely shop would see me daily if I lived there.
The tiny details of those old houses are always so enchanting.
Could not any house do with such a friendly guard?
She then showed me the "Wintles Estate". This is an eco community and all the houses are built "bio", have alternative energy sources, wood burners and are mainly built of eco treated timber and those colours seem to me being based on lime, they have wonderful pastel tones. Behind is an area with allotments. (Note: In the last Country Living these kind of eco-conscious communities are listed, amongst are the Wintles).Must be a comfortable living in these houses, can you see that little JRT in the window? He just watched.
After having collected LLL = Lovely Lawyerlady from Shrewsbury station, we went to the Lowfield Inn in order to meet up with the gang and having a nice lunch :-)
Afterwards, Mountainear had organised a visit to one of the oldest wooden churches on top of Trelystan mountain.
Happy to be at eternal rest on such a great place!
Special thanks to all you nice people to having let me be with you and share that most beautiful county - so I think - in the UK.
