Shrewsbury - Shropshire

From the Town Centre of Shrewsbury, about 3 miles or 4 miles the roads around here are one-way traffic. Driving for about 15 or 20 minutes, we came across a bridge which we have to pay for toll to go across it. This is Kingsland Bridge along the River Severn which is privately owned toll bridge.

Decided not to pay for the toll fee to enter the bridge we moved off to another direction to   see some of the  hills  at the outskirt of Shrewsbury. Instead we came across this place which is known as Beck Field  Countryside heritage Site. So we stopped at here and enjoyed ourselves strolling along the River Severn.

The English Bridge and Welsh bridge are Shrewsbury's main access bridges for automobiles. In year 2005 and 2007 this River Severn  had a severe flooding. The River Severn in town is used for rowing.  Rowing is a popular pastime in the town. Shrewsbury regatta is one of the oldest amateur rowing events in England.

While we were enjoying ourselves, relaxing around the riverside. Times seem to be passing faster than usual. It was time for us to pack up and go home now. I would love this life rowing a boat in the River Severn and take times to enjoy this serenity lifestyle. Lucky I still had half an hours to enjoy taking photos while my husband having his little nap before driving back home.

Time to pack up my camera and ready to head back home. A five stars for this place and would love to come back to visit here again soon,
