Moreton Corbet Castle

Moreton Corbet is the ruin of a half-castle half-stately home in Shropshire, a beautiful and peaceful place on the edge of a tiny village, surrounded by fields. The castle was built over a period of 500 years and abandoned in the 18th century when the family moved to another property. It’s a fascinating place to explore, a mix of building materials and styles, and lots of little details to admire.

Earls Hill views

 

Earls Hill and Pontesford Hill are located near Pontesbury, Shropshire. It’s a steep climb for amazing views across Shropshire and over to Wales. There are 2 Iron Age hill forts up there, a perfect position to defend yourself against the neighbours, and the earthworks and embankments are still clearly defined.

Look at the contours on that! I’m so unfit, it was really hard work to get up there, but definitely worth it 🙂
