A sunny Sunday at the start of April. The Colts were playing a cup semi-final against Whitchurch in Shropshire. That’s a fair old drive from Kirkby Lonsdale.

Before the match I had time for a brief stroll around the town.


I thought the place looked pretty picturesque and was quite surprised how quiet it was. Most places were shut, it’s obviously off the tourist routes.


I wouldn’t mind coming back for another, more leisurely, look.


I don’t seem to have taken any photos of the rugby, but the boys won. Roll on the final!

(In honesty, it’s already happened, but will have to wait here on the blog!)

      Me too. Timbered buildings seem to be a bit of a Shropshire speciality, in my very limited experience at least.

      Yes. I’d like to explore it again, but not sure under what circumstances that’s likely to happen. Unless the lads draw them in the cup again next season.
