A short drive along the River Severn from Ironbridge will take you to Coalport. There you can find the Tar Tunnel and the China Museum along with a some good pubs and lovely walks.

taking a nap
We had a lovely walk from The Stanage this morning to Little Wenlock. The walk is just under 2 miles in each direction and on a mild New Years Day it was just the job.
It was good to be able to walk and not slide along the lanes as we had been doing recently. Still a few piles of snow on the roadside...

National Trust Snowdrop walks start in February.
Have just reminded myself that the snowdrops will soon...
Wenlock Priory, English Heritage
If you are planning a trip to Shropshire this year why not include a visit to this delightful English Heritage site.
Much Wenlock is a 20 minute drive from The Stanage, Bed and Breakfast in Telford.
We found this lovely National Trust property on a windy afternoon in December. Although it was closed to the public it was a still worth the short drive from The Stanage to walk along the footpath in front and photograph the house and gardens.
