A delightful visit to Shropshire Bedlams and Martha Rhoden's Tuppeny Dish at Bishop's Castle.
The majority of us camped, arriving on Friday evening and pitching our tents before adjourning to the Three Tuns in Bishop's Castle for the evening. Then, back to the campsite, where the rain clouds were gathering ...
We arose the following morning to a wet world, where boarded the coach in Bishop's Castle and headed off to Shrewsbury. There, the rain eased off as the day progressed and we danced in the damp with regular interludes in the pub.
Then, back on the coach to Bishop's Castle and tea and cakes! And after that, stll more food at the evening meal!!
Next, a concert in the church (GW contributions from Nina, Rosie, Richard and the GW Helium Voiced Choir), followed by a ceilidh, where GW did a dance spot - including the father and son rendition of Maid of the Millennium (complete with James' remarkable recovery in the hey).
It was a disturbed night for those of us camping, as the gales blew in from the west, but no major damage was done and it did at least help to dry the tents.
The next morning we headed into town, where we danced at a residential home before processing to the church where we danced - some of us also managed a brief interlude in the Six Bells.
