Last month I started a new series of posts where I bring you my 5 favourite shots from that months adventures, so following on from that, here is the top 5 from the wonderful month of May.
The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct has carried the Llangollen canal over the River Dee since 1805, now a World heritage site it can either be enjoyed on foot or by boat, both of which will provide stunning views way off into the distance
Situated on the border between England and Wales, Chirk Castle has seen many things since its construction way back in 1295, during peacetime and war the castle has stood strong throughout, now welcoming thousands of national trust members every year within its high walls.
Moesley Old Hall
Moseley Old Hall sheltered a tired and frightened young man within its walls, changing the history of the UK forever and paving the way for the UK to return to a monarchy, for that man was Charles ll, fleeing a battle with the Roundheads and making his way south to escape the country, only to return years later to take back the throne that his father was forced to abdicate.
Bailey Street, Oswestry
A small market town on the border between the England and Wales is probably the last place you would expect to find multicoloured umbrellas handing from strings above the street, but if you pop through an alleyway on Bailey Street in Oswestry, that is exactly what you will find.
Bridgemere Garden Centre
Bridgemere garden centre is a massive place to walk around, complete with its own castle and gardens, somewhere you can go for inspiration for what to do in your own back yard, just maybe not on such a grand scale.
