Ellesmere, Shropshire

DSC_0023-small

A market town, like Wem, Ellesmere is in the northern part of Shropshire.  It has the largest natural mere (lake) outside the Lake District, without a natural flow of water into it.  And we went for a walk.

Ellesmere doesn’t have a mall.  It’s a small town, of just over 3,000 people, northwest of Wem, and just few minutes from Wales.  A small with Medieval streets, Georgian homes and half timbered buildings.

You can see the new homes being built.

But the old ones are predominant.  And how I love those buildings.  Beautiful homes.

A walk can’t get any better than this.  Can’t it?
