Shreswbury and Barmouth in Wales

Sunshine in Wales - I hear it happens but have never seen it

semi-overcast 22 °C

Sunday was spent in and around Stokesay Castle, the best castle in the world and where the best lemon curd is sold


Monday began with brilliant sunshine in Shrewsbury and a great forecast for the mid-Wales coast. So we packed our bags and headed down to Barmouth for a few days touring. Every mile closer to the coast brought more and more cloud as we drove through beautiful mountainous valleys and by the time we got to Barmouth it was pouring with rain and the forecast had changed to rain for the next few days. We turned straight around and drove back to Shrewsbury through the same valleys; at least I think they were the same as the cloud had descended to about 200'

A couple of early evening pints with Rob and Jo and a new plan was hatched - 3 days in the Peak District where the weather would definitely be better!
