Early spring walk in Shropshire

Red sandstone cliffs above the River Worfe, eroded by wind & rain (too high for river water erosion)

I just love these tree stump seats

‘Spring Beauty’ shoots pushing up through the winter leaf mould, – this one taking a snail shell with it as it grows

First catkins (on hazel) this spring. From the Dutch word for kitten. 

View down to the River Worfe, a tributary of the River Severn – England’s longest river (which runs through the middle of the Apley Estate)

Shropshire has an extensive network of public footpaths, so we set off & enjoyed a fab early spring Shropshire jog on Sunday. It’s equally possible on a mountain bike or walking if jogging isn’t your thing. After our coldest St Valentine’s Day for years, it’s a pleasure to look back to Sunday which was at least sunnier !

The Skylark Nature Trail at Apley Farm Shop is open all year round, takes 45 mins max & is free of charge. Dogs can be taken, but owners must always clear up after their dogs please. K9 Anytime is doggy daycare less than 1 mile from the Apley Farm Shop.
