Shropshire is split into two areas, to the north is the Shropshire plain, flat and fertile with rivers slowly winding their way through the quintessential English countryside of meadows and pastures and to the south is dominated by mountains ranges and ‘batches’, a colloquial term for small valleys. It’s here that we head to first, the Shropshire hills area of outstanding natural beauty.
You can’t miss the Long Mynd, one of the highest points in the Shropshire Hills, an area of heath land popular with walkers as you fly past and over the pretty town of Church Stretton. It’s on to Iron Bridge and it’s famous gorge and the bridge that crosses it, a scenic tourist destination and UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a quick fly around the relatively new town of Telford, named after Thomas Telford, it’s on to Shrewsbury the county town of Shropshire with it’s medieval heart and 660 listed buildings, the complete opposite of Telford.
From here we head north west to Oswestry, look out for ‘old Oswestry’ one of the best preserved hill forts in the UK with evidence of construction and occupation between 800 BC and 43 AD and said to be described as “The Stonehenge of the Iron Age Period”.
Then it’s south to back to Welshpool with the distractive mountains of Wales to your right and the flat plains of Shropshire to your left.
