North Shropshire and the surrounding areas are packed with things to see and do, places to visit and ah, those gardens... You can gaze at the waterfall and views from the Dorothy Clive Garden or pinch ideas from the lime allée at Wollerton Old Hall.
Hadnall Country Garden Centre has a collection of old style roses you can buy and there's still more to tempt you at Bridgemere Garden World and Cholmondeley Castle. Your fingers turn green just thinking about it.
Then there's Hawkstone's famous Follies, are a spectacular and extraordinary collection of man-made caves, cliffs and grottoes – Britain's first ever theme park, opened in 1748, and much loved today by television producers (and visitors) seeking a magical setting.
You may also stumble across the haunting ruin of Moreton Corbett Castle. Some say it remains unfinished and incomplete because of an ancient puritan curse - discover the full story here.
In North Shropshire as well as the many glacial meres you'll find another result of the ice age: our unique Mosses, or peat bogs. Filled with rare plants and protected wildlife, they've also yielded up several perfectly preserved remains of "bog men": the macabre victims of ancient sacrifices.
There are also many other attractions all but a stones throw away. Fancy watching sheep racing and maybe placing a wager or riding through the Severn Valley - on a steam train, here's soot in your eye. You can rediscover Victorian values at Blists Hill town museum, set in the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.
