There are several cottages with plaques above their front doors. This one is on a cottage built by Captain Cam who worked on the River Severn. Nearby is Dove Cottage with images of two doves above two sailors, twin brothers who were drowned in the River Severn.
We were surprised how quiet it was when we arrived at The Ship Inn and chose a table in the patio garden overlooking the redundant canal arm. This rather tall cottage was just across on the other bank from us. The water was teeming with little fish with reddish fins, which we think may have been Roach. Anyway the roast dinner was excellent and came with a choice of puddings all for £9.95. We had the apple pie with custard. When we left the place was full of diners, just the way we like it. We decided to take the scenic route back to Oakfield via the footpath.
The wildflowers have been really spectacular this year even with very little rainfall.
