Photographed by Anthony J Sargeant on a sunny summer’s day. This Fabulous site is maintained by English Heritage. Tranquil and peaceful even though just a short distance from the World Heritage Site which is Ironbridge and which is packed with tourists. We had the site almost to ourselves apart from one or two other visitors as can be seen from this picture. This fabulous ruin of a 12th Century Cistercian Abbey was a victim of Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries.

Not far from the Shropshire home of Anthony J Sargeant there is a tiny 12th Century Church which is surrounded by an ancient graveyard. Tony photographed these snowdrops bursting through the moss and grass that lies over the bones of generations of Shropshire women, children and men buried beneath. Photographed on a freezing crystal clear day, February 25th 2018 the snowdrops announce that spring cannot be far behind.

Shropshire in the Snow – 21st January 2018

IMG_5791

This photograph was taken by Anthony J Sargeant from a South facing bedroom window of his Shropshire home on 21st January 2018. It was only the second snowfall of the Winter (the first was just before Christmas) and although the snow barely settled this time and only lasted for a day it transformed for that brief time the scene looking out across the garden of the house to the sheep pastures beyond.
