Let's start with something astronomical, Jupiter and Venus in close proximity last night.
This morning we set off for Oswestry, once again having to run the gauntlet of the feathered assassins on the towpath. Emboldened by the fact that Jill did not have her poles with her they had another go at us, I ended up beating them off with my hat, damn things.
A pleasant border town, Oswestry.
I'm not a sculpture aficianado but I rather liked this one in the town, it's entitled "The Border Farmer"
In the centre of town is the old town cross, actually it's a Victorian drinking fountain,
There's a fine mix of building periods and styles around the town,
At the bottom of the motte is the town hall, my favourite building in the town,
The church, dedicated to St. Oswald, is a bit of a mish-mash as everyone seems to have knocked it about over the years but it does have a most imposing tower, the lower part of which is Norman.
I took many more piccies but just can't fit them all in, I'm afraid I just get too self indulgent so I will restrain myself tonight.
Watch this space..........
