We had a fab time camping.
We stayed at a campsite near Ludlow in Shropshire, a pleasant hour or so drive from home. Our view from the tent was over into the Welsh Borders.
The town of Ludlow itself is medieval with lots of half timbered buildings.
I love how the top left of this building is on a wonk.
Turn down a side street and it all goes Georgian, good enough for a film set. Stupidly, I didn't take a picture myself of this street.
There is a castle right in the middle of the town.
The weather was changeable, somedays hot and sunny and some really cold, luckily we only had rain at night. We had a fire pit to toast marshmallows and keep us warm.
We visited Blists Hill, a working Victorian Town in the nearby Ironbridge Gorge. The shops are run by staff in Victorian Costume and pre-covid you can change modern day money into Victorian money and buy sugar mice, bread etc but not right now.
I love the old posters and signs, Matron Milly's female mixture, lol, non-shrinking woollen underwear and of course, I found one for Jones Sewing Machines.
We stopped to watch George the heavy horse being tacked up ready to pull a cart, he was a real gentle giant.
Miss Clicky and Baby Needles went to see George when his tack was on.

As we'd had a full day we drove up to IronBridge just to have a look at the bridge, in the middle of this pic.
Of course, on a campsite you can wander around in your pjs and nobody cares; me and Baby Needles enjoying a morning book.
The heavens opened as we packed the tent so we just bundled it into the car and now it's drying in the garage at home. What a great week.
Bye for now...........Clicky Needles.
