Review of Albrighton by Jacqui on July 20th, 2008
I have lived in Albrighton since 1996 and would not dream of living anywhere else. The village has a great sense of community with a fantastic range of quality shops and restaurants to suit all plus Cosford Air Museum, which is free, also train, bus and taxi services. It is a bustling village with friendly locals who are both courteous and helpful, so anyone thinking of visiting, don't hesitate, you will love it here !!!

Review of All Stretton by Lynda Bullock on September 26th, 2007
I recently stayed for two weeks at Jinlye, All Stretton and loved every minute of it. Church Stretton is a very pleasant country town with buildings of historic and architectural interest. You have all amenities plus gift shops, museum, gallery, pubs and takeaways. The local station takes you to Shrewsbury or Ludlow or any points beyond and the countryside itself is outstanding. Walks on the Long Mynd were superb and there is easy access to the hills. A wonderful part of the country and I can't wait to visit again.

Review of Bridgnorth by Dawn Roberts on July 27th, 2006
A great place to visit for a short break or a day. We live in the midlands, and this very pretty riverside town was on our doorstep all the time! We kept comparing it to other parts of the country we had visited - Wales, Yorkshire and Cumbria - it really does have a holiday feel about it. The cliff lift enables you to visit both the low town, by the river, and the main high town (you can also use one of a series of steps too - soem are stepper than others!). The town has a lovely, friendly feel - with 'proper' shops such as a delicatessan and butchers, as well as high street shops, gift shops, and a very good choice of cafes, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. Spend a few hours simply walking round - we dicovered lots of pretty streets and alleys, the lovely St Leonards church area, and the (worryingly wonky) castle remains and grounds at the top of the town. Cross over the footbridge to the Severn Valley railway - the steam train's journey is lovely, as you follow the river, with lots of choices to stop off (Bewdley, Arley and the country park area around Highley and Hampton Loade). Bridgnorth is definitely worth a visit.
Review of Bridgnorth by Bernard Pritchard on June 2nd, 2006
I think that Brignorth is one of the towns that is unspoilt by progress.I know that on Saturday it is market day and thatit overun with visitors,but on a normal day it is one of the most peaceful places to be.The Castle Walk is one of the most lovely of views of the River Severn and of Low Town that you could wish to see. I go there every week and I will never get bored with the place.Cheers for now. Bernard

Review of Ironbridge by Gail Foster on February 3rd, 2006
Ironbridge is a freindly place to visit and to live. It has great eating places at very reasonable prices. The only drawbacks are the lack of parking facilities, and the steep hills getting to the village. Walking to Ironbridge is a problem if you're not used to walking!A really good place to eat is the White Horse pub at the top of Lincoln Hill. Lovely food and a friendly welcome. There is plenty to see in Ironbridge and the surrounding area, The famous Ironbridge, Coalport China Works, Ironbridge & Coalbrookdale museums. A good view of the bridge can be obtained by climbing the 100+ steps up to the church from the Square! St Luke's offers a warm welcome and refreshments at Sunday 11 a.m services, and special open days which are advertised in the Square

Review of Oswestry by Ria Skelton on June 27th, 2007
I live near Oswetry and think it is a lovely town. However, the leisure facilities in this town are awful, there is nothing for people of my age (15) to do. The only place we can sit is in the park, and even then we get looked at as if we are about to rob a bank or somthing. I think that they should introduce more facilities taht can be used not only by youths, but by older people too. If this can't be done, something could AT LEAST be done about updating the amenities we already have. Other than that, it's a lovely, quiet town with easy access to larger towns sucha s Shrewsbury, Wrexham, Chester etc. Visit..It's Lovely :)

Review of Shifnal by s.holmes on October 11th, 2006
shifnal, a great little town we were visiting for 2 days the greek resturant was super, lovely food and quick, polite and helpful staff. the naughty nell on the other hand was a good pub but the worst b & b we have ever stayed at, breakfast was very late and we were locked out in the afternoon,dirty damp laundry was left on the landing,which was also a fire hazard. a good job it was fairly cheap.

Review of Telford by Oliver Pickmere on September 12th, 2008
Yes, I know Telford from my R.A.F. Service at R.A.F. Shawbury. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that the Council would issue such an idiotic decree, asking what people without children are doing in the Parks under their jurisdiction. If I was asked that question by some jobsworth I tell them that it was no business of theirs. I served on a Minesweeper in the Royal Navy during the War. Sometimes when I read of stupid decisions such as this, I almost wish that we'd lost. Oliver Pickmere, 99 Pennine Way, Harlington, Hayes, Middx. UB3 5LJ

Review of Tong by peter on April 29th, 2007
Having been to birmingham for the day we thought it may be nice to eat at a country inn. We pulled of the M54 and came across the Bell.We ordered drinks and sat down with the menu,s. The tables were filthy,dried tomato sauce splilt beer and the odd chip.I went to the toilets this smelt of stale urine and the floors were sticky,my partner said the ladies were the same.We drank up and left,if this was the general state what were the kitchens like .....

Review of Worfield by Clyde Kennedy on June 11th, 2006
Go to Google. Enter "The Clyde and Marie Story" - - check down several items and you will see that Worfield is mentioned. And, as I indicated in that article published by the Express and Star, Worfield and the area surrounding it has a special place in my heart.
