My home from home in the Clun Valley

If I could choose anywhere to live in Shropshire, it would have to be the beautiful Clun Valley.

My home from home in the Clun Valley

I love the rolling countryside and ancient footpaths, which are just calling out to be explored.

This particular day had started at 5am, and as sunset approached I found myself standing in a field above the village of Newcastle on Clun.

Offa’s Dyke can be seen snaking its way across the middle of the picture, with the Welsh border beyond the distant hills.

This is the half-way point along the 177-mile-long Offa’s Dyke Path, which one day I aim to tackle in full.

As it was, I just stood and drank in the views before heading back to the car at the end of what had been a long - but very enjoyable - day.
