    Well some say its haunted by a old miner killed by a runaway mine cart , we just thought it was quiet and had amazing views - free camping anyway :)




    fresh water





    The old railway track :-












    This mornings breakfast view





    i like these two pics





    A good walk yesterday through driving wind and rain gave us a good appetite and a good nights sleep , we missed the ghost but the driving wind and rain woke us ( me ) a couple of times :)

    Clee hill is in shropshire between ludlow and Kidderminster , its a wild and barren environment where men are men and sheep are worried , a few miles beyond to the south are the more famous Malvern hills .

    A E Housman wrote poetry about this area , A Shropshire lad is probably his most noted work -

    i love the Clee's and its got a lot of common land so park up and enjoy .

    The bus went very well , for the first time since i have had it i could pull up to a junction without seeing the tell tale red light on the dash that meant the engine had stopped , it took some getting used to : all i could hear was the satisfying tick of a vw aircooled and i can't say i missed that roar of the empi !.
     
  4. Glad your getting all those little niggles sorted malc and enjoying the bus

  6. Making memories dude thats what its all about

    Im looking forward to getting mine moved along some more and back out on the road
    Yesterdays trip out would have been so much better in the bus especially crossing the ford and driving down the washed out roads

    At least ive got a bus though and the skills to get it in a good condition
