For information abaout Caer Caradoc hillfort, look here.
I passed this on the train yesterday, and thought that it's a place I must visit. You have convinced me!
Hi Steve, it's lovely, but you need to take stout boots! It was very steep & I found it tough going - though other members of my party skipped about like mountain goats... Berry's Coffee House in nearby Church Stretton is a wonderful place for a lunch that's out of the ordinary.
Last time I was in C.S. we did Berry's but went up the hills the other side - Little Switzerland and Cardingmill Valley. My pics from there are in my earliest uploads here. The Church Stretton Fault runs down to the Bristol Channel. Way back (several hundred million years ago) , the hills that are adjacent now may have been hundreds of miles apart in a San Andreas type of slippage. Shropshire is a geological goldmine.
Sorry.. I was forgetting you know this area far better than me! I think Berry's is probably a well-known institution - we did no reasearch but just happened upon it, while intending to find a pub for lunch.
It really is a fascinating part of the world, I agree!
