Caer Caradoc

A Shropshire hill with a Welsh name, on St George’s day. England’s patron saint was born in Turkey to Greek parents, a former Roman soldier who never came to Britain (and certainly never slew any dragons!) It’s a popular outing – several others around (we can hear them!) but we can enjoy an al fresco lunch just below the summit and watch the trains go by, 300m below. Above us are red kites, but they’re camera shy today. Perhaps I can get a shot of one of these big noisy dragonflies…

We leave Caractacus’s fort and head back towards Cardington via the Battle Stones and Hill End – an altogether quieter conclusion to another great day out.
