Weekend Walkabouts

Clunton , Clungunford  and Clun

the quietest places under the sun

A E Housman

 Clun - last weekend was a sleepy village - cold winda at bay - mists and fog left in the valleys behind us - only crisp sunshine and blue skies .

The intention of the day was to visit the castle which is an English Heritage site - protected now - but showing the ravages of time The castle ruins stand proudly on a mound

and the walkways take a circular route - offering fantastic views

The river Clun  runs through the small town and on towards Clungunford where it toins the River Teme

And this weekend it was a drive out to Dudmaston Hall - a National Trust property - and a Snowdrop walk - well worth a visit -  a 17th century country house set in impressive grounds and nestling in the Severn Valley 

A paradise for walkers young and old - walks planned out accordingly - we chose the snowdrop walk and we were not disappointed
We dodged the showers and wandered round the woods

more snowdrops 

We walked through the trees around the lake see header pic called at the coffee shop - - and then made our way home - enjoy your week - linking to Our World Tuesday today  - Jane 


  1. The snowdrops are beautiful...and so many of them!
