ABC Wednesday and E is for Elizabethan Era

It is ABC Wednesday and E is for Elizabethan Era - this last weekend a trip out to scoop a pic for an entry into the local camera club = the subject being black and white buildings. Shropshire is renown for its excellent half timbered buildings- but the search was for something a little bit special and different.
Two venues on the agenda first one being Melverley Church - St Peters is half timbered dates back to the 15th - 16th century -
and stands just above the River Vyrnwy just before it joins the River Severn
Snowdrops were in abundance amongst the old tombstones
...from here it was on to Colemere to view the Boathouse- built in the 19th century - so maybe it doesn't count for the competition- but nevertheless very picturesque.
The walk around Colemere is very therapeutic although today we only went half way round because the day was beginning to draw in
Colemere has magnificent views and legends abound of mermaids and submerged church bells. Well maybe we have our pictures maybe not , there's always next week - the competition runs the first week in March - so watch this space for more pics. Meanwhile I am popping over to ABC Wednesday to view others contributions today.


  1. I could SO live in the Boathouse, it's gorgeous!

  2. Looking at your snowdrops makes me want to be there! I love the architecture of these buildings.

  3. We have never been to Shropshire...BUT - later this year we are planning to circumnavigate the country and stop off every couple of hundred miles and visit places we have never been. I am thinking it would be a good idea to meet up for cups of tea with the people I know through blogging!

    Great post for ABC Wednesday - love the routes it takes us each week.

  4. Snowdrops and Elizabethan architecture, couldn't be any better.

  5. Won't it be great if you are enjoying the lake view and then suddenly a mermaid emerge! That would be a sight!

    Happy valentine's day!

  10. I agree - very picturesque. History and images like these send me into dream mode. The boathouse and the tombstones would be wonderful to explore.
