Longmynd House, Church Stretton, Shropshire - March 2017

A short walking holiday with HF Holidays (3 days of walks from Tues 28 to Thur 30 March 2017).

(1) Below: The walk on Day 2 was Bromfield to Ludlow, the old capital of Wales.
The Ludford Bridge crosses the River Teme south of the town.
In the background can be seen the impressive castle, built between 11th and 13th centuries.
(2) Below: On day 3, a 12 mile loop, an ascent up the lovely Ashes Hollow valley here took us to the top of Long Mynd and its highest point, Pole Bank (516m).
(3) Below: After a long loop we returned to Long Mynd and in this view we are on the plateau and about to descend.
(4) Below: A very attractive view of the start of the Townbrook Valley, which we descended towards Church Stretton.

The terrain in this area resembles high hills rather than mountains, but the unspoilt valley routes reminded me of parts of the Yorkshire Dales or even the Lakes.
