Severn Valley Railway

Yesterday the weather was glorious, so we took advantage of the sunshine and took a leisurely drive through the Shropshire countryside to Highley Station and Engine house. We arrived just in time for lunch, which we ate sitting on the balcony overlooking the railway track. We timed it just right to watch a couple of trains go by and capture a few photographs.

We then headed home taking in more of the countryside, stopping for a cup of tea along the way. I also managed to locate I garden centre that I hadn’t been to for years. It is now on my list of things to do on another day.  Along Wenlock edge we noticed several scarecrows along the roadside, there was even ‘a scared crow’.  After a bit of research I found out that they were leading the way to a flower festival at St Peter’s church, Rushbury.

Even though the nights are drawing in now, it was possible to dine on the patio as the sun went down behind my oak tree.

    A Bank holiday without rain :) It’s been a great summer. I had planned to go once to the SVR but it was on a special event weekend & there was no appropriate accommodation left.
