Wigmore and Shobdon

We’re wandering in the north-western corner of Herefordshire. Wigmore Castle is unusual in that it hasn’t been tidied-up in its derelict state – rambling and colourful undergrowth rather than manicured lawns. Just the place for the Famous Five, or was it the Secret Seven, to have an adventure. Yes, they turned up, complete with dog.

The Shobdon Arches form a folly on the hillside, some remains from the interior of the old church which was replaced more than 250 years ago. Sadly, the stone carvings are suffering from the weather.

  1. These are places I am very familiar with and spent many happy hours walking and rambling in this area. I miss them more than I can say. Good to see a posting from you as seems awhile since you have. appeared. Beautiful photographs as always. Thank you for sharing.
