On the A41 from Telford to Market Drayton, feeling peckish but longing for something different? There's a very good Indian “The Lion” by the PO as you enter the village of Waters Upton. Very popular, large car park to rear, booking is advisable. It looks like a traditional English pub but don’t be put off! The onion bhaji are a real treat, as is their jalfrezi, but beware, as their hotter dishes really are hot!
Telford Centre - This place has almost everything you could wish for (in a rain-free environment!), from shops (big department stores & smaller niche ones) to a multi-screen cinema, retail parks, a boating lake, library, indoor market, etc, etc! Getting there by car can be a nightmare if you don’t know where you’re going on a busy Saturday – don’t go for the 1st car park you come across from most major routes (Asda). Beware the multi-storey next up on the left – tight turns on the ramps, OK if you’re in a Smart but otherwise! Follow signs to the cinema (past the bus station) but instead of going in the cinema car park, turn left just before – big car park & usually spaces as it’s a little walk through an underpass to get to the shops!
