Shropshire is proudly known as the 'birthplace of industry' where the industrial revolution and use of iron propelled Britain to the forefront of world development. It is also a county of delightful countryside and inspiring stories too. Our itinerary takes us on a cruise along the River Severn through the heart of ancient Shrewsbury, and unveils heroic tales from 100 years of the RAF at the excellent RAF Cosford Museum. Further afield we take time for reflection at the National Memorial Arboretum.
