There will be a guided walk around the Shrewsbury river bridges followed by a barbecue lunch at the home of Simon and Bridget Nightingale by the river near Porthill footbridge.
The walk will start at 10.30 from the corner of Frankwell car park next to the footbridge, and you can walk all or part of the walk as it is easy to drop out and go straight to the lunch venue. We plan to visit (but not cross all) the bridges around the town centre and look at points of interest and some of the history. There will be some steps and inclines, and the route may be changed subject to the weather and any flooding.
If you don’t want to go on the walk, meet at the house in New Street, Frankwell, from 12.00 for the BBQ at 13.00. There is plenty to do in the house and garden, including table tennis, a rowing boat (with an electric motor for the lazy), a rather difficult maze and a house full of mechanical puzzles. There is very limited parking, but Frankwell car park is not far away.
There is a charge of £5 for the meal. If you’d like to come, please contact our Secretary who will give you the details. This enables us to plan for numbers and dietary requirements.
