Homeward Bound

Ah well all good things come to an end.

We set out at 8:30 enjoying the lovely scenery and watching it change as we moved out of  Snowdonia and then onto Shropshire.

Highlight was a Tawny Owl flying in front of the car!

Oh and you realise once you leave Shropshire how much traffic there is from then on!!

We stopped for lunch at Baddesley Clinton (the sandwich, Brie & Bacon was poor - bread was dry and the Brie ordinary - the cake, Iced Ginger, was quite nice though).

Didn't go into the house due to time but took a few photos outside.

Did this chap follow us from Wales?

The adjacent church.

Glad you had time to stop off at Baddesley on the way home Pete :) Nice to see photos of inside the church as I couldn't find a way in when I was last there!

if I saw someone with an Olympus camera I'd have said hi!!

I think the church is open with the house. Been open on both my visits.

Hi Pete

I would have loved to have popped in and said hello. I really did think of it but unfortunately I've had to spend all weekend sorting through mum's stuff looking for important documentation - I believe she has kept every piece of post over the last 15 years!

Let me know when you are next in the Midlands and I will come along to say "hi"!!!! :)

You are right about the church - its just that I thought the grilles to keep out birds was a security feature and didn't realise it was the entrance! Doh! I shall know next time I visit!

Another great trip report. I like north Wales, especially around Snowdonia. Some wonderful scenery.
