Well, we went out out at the weekend to Carding Mill Valley, part of the Shropshire Hills and a beautiful place to go walking. The climb up to the top of the Long Mynd is a real killer, and I kept having to stop to take a photograph, which is my excuse for stopping for a rest!

We walked through Carding Mill Valley, then up Motts Road (which is not a road at all, just very steep path!), up to the Long Mynd plateau (from where the above photo was taken) and then down to Wildmoor Pool:

It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny, but the best part, as far as the children were concerned, was the waterfall:

It's not a huge waterfall, but it was several times the height of the elder son, and the boys had fun trying to get as close to the water as possible without actually getting drenched. Since elder son ended up sticking his head under the water, he was unsuccessful in remaining dry! Then on the way back to the car, they found some more water to play in (and at 19, 17 and 11, you would have though that two of them at least would have been old enough to not want do this anymore!). We eventually got back to the car, with the youngest being able to actually pour water out of his wellington boots, and his brother having mud stains all over his back from where he skidded on the muddy path! Of course, their sister remained dry despite getting very close to her brothers under the waterfall!

As usual, I took loads of photos, and this is an overlay and some papers I made form one of them.
