We are incredibly lucky to live in an area with so much history, Ironbridge, Much Wenlock, Buildwas Abbey, I could go on. There are so many beautiful places to visit in Shropshire and I'm surprised by how many I've never been to. Cosford is one of those places, I've gone past it on the train… Continue reading Cosford

On Tuesday we took a drive out to Chester Zoo, it's just over an hours drive from Telford and we had pre-booked our tickets the night before.
