S for Shrewsbury

Should we be up on the hills in the snow? It’s a bright but cold afternoon, with a biting wind – perhaps something a bit more sheltered. We decided on a walk beside the Severn in Shrewsbury, a route that in my mind was roughly S-shaped. Looking at the map afterwards, it’s a bit more than an “S” – not sure how to describe it. Inevitably, though the sky was mostly blue, the sun spent much of its time behind a (relatively small) bank of cloud.

    Hello Geoff, Looks like a lovely , if perhaps cold day there? Could you tell me if the photo of the bookshop is Candle Lane books? If so, it is one of my favorite bookshops1 Really fun to see Shrewsbury again. Thank you for posting these.

    • That’s the one! It was closed, so we didn’t go in. I don’t think our muddy feet would have been appreciated either.

    Thanks Geoff for confirming it was the Candle Lane bookshop~ yes, I expect it would be closed if on a Sunday (if that was when you visited Shrewsbury) It was really lovely to see it again anyway. Wish I could spend a couple of hours there now~ 🙂
