Famous for its wide flowing rivers, picturesque moorland and heather covered valleys, Shropshire is a delightful slice of the English landscape. Located on the England / Wales border, Shropshire is arguably one of the most peaceful and rural counties in England, the perfect destination for those hoping to unwind and relax amidst gorgeous scenery and endless English heritage.
Shropshire has numerous charming and vibrant market towns to choose from, such as Ellesmere with its narrow medieval streets and well preserved Georgian buildings, or Market Drayton, (hometown of Clive of India) known for its 200 year old Wednesday market as well as its walking routes along the Shropshire Union Canal and its fantastic 40 step aqueduct.
Also worth visiting is Shrewsbury, Shropshire's county town with its distinctive black and white buildings and windy cobbled streets along the banks of the River Severn (and famous as the birthplace of Charles Darwin) and Stokesay Castle in Craven Arms, one of the best 13th Century fortified manor houses in Britain. The landscape in the area surrounding Stokesay Castle is also a good starting point for some beautiful strolls through the idyllic Shropshire landscape. Lastly, a must-see historic site is Ironbridge, home to the original Iron Bridge and a World Heritage Site.
To really get to grips with Shropshire it is essential to get out in the countryside and the best place to start is the impressive and exhilarating Shropshire Way walking trail, (the old village of Whitchurch is a good place to start.) In addition there are hundreds of miles of long distance trails all passing through sumptuous unspoiled countryside and past over 30 separate nature reserves and more than 32 castles.
Also worth a day's walk is Offa's Dyke, the UK's longest archaeological site, (built by King Offa in the 8th Century to keep out the Welsh Princes) and now central to the Offa's Dyke Path. Lastly, there is the lakeland of Meres and Mosses near to Ellesmere which is a haven for wildlife and offers both fishing or boating for even more Shropshire relaxation.

Death of the High Street?
The BBC reports that despite councils' attempts to kurb them, the UK's high streets have seen a huge growth in fast food outlets. Could this mark the death knell for the Great British high street, and what can we do about it to halt its decline?
Discrimination by Postcode
You really couldn't make it up, could you? Some of the country's most vulnerable people are missing out on their weekly £25 Cold Weather Payment, just because the system that's in operation is discriminating against them because payments are based on postcode, rather than geographic location.
The Redesign is Underway
Well, the current website was absolutely in dire need of a good redesign - from the ground up. So I set out to pull it all apart and get it up and running again to become the most comprehensive guide to every postcode in the UK. And it's been a long, tough job from start to finish - and quite possibly the biggest project I've ever undertaken.
The Impossible Challenge of Affordability
No wonder the younger generation are getting more and more frustrated with money - new research has revealed that even with a 10% deposit, 25-34 year olds are struggling to afford even the CHEAPEST houses on the market. Is there a solution to the 'impossible challenge'?
