After a very relaxed, first week of the Easter holidays, we headed off for a week away at the historic and very picturesque town of Ludlow in Shropshire with my parents 😀
And where better to stay than in the castle itself? This was the view that greeted us on Monday. Fab! The kids had a great time running around exploring. On Tuesday we explored more of the town itself. Above right is one of the many, many beautiful, old, Tudor buildings: The Feathers Inn. If you love history and haven’t visited before, I thoroughly recommend it as a destination.
On Wednesday we followed a couple of popular, walking trails around the town taking in yet more beautiful views. By Thursday we were ready to explore a little further afield and so headed to Blist’s Hill, a Victorian, model village (one of the many Ironbridge, tourist destinations). Above right was one of the lovely displays in the draper’s shop.
Friday took us shopping… amongst the fantastic array of independent shops (many of them food-related, Ludlow is a foodie’s heaven) was The Bindery Shop. I treated myself to a beautiful, new address book. Sadly it was time to head home at the end of the week, but we made the most of the journey home pausing at Ironbridge itself (above right).
And today, Sunday, I’m making the most of the last day of the holidays back home. This is the next project on my sewing table 🙂 Dreaming of warmer weather…
Hope everyone’s had a lovely break too (and possibly still going if you’re lucky, school holidays seem to be all over the place at the moment). I’m looking forward to catching up on the, no doubt many, posts I’ve missed while I’ve been away…
