Visited with RavenWing, NoLimitsPhotographyDan and a Non member.

After a late start and a breakfast in Stoke, myself and Ravenwing headed off to Stafford to meet Dan then we were on our way to Much Wenlock.

Much Wenlock is a quiet little town sitting in central Shropshire. And is mostly reknown for the Olympian Games which apparently inspired the Olympic Games we know and watch every 4 years. However, a few hundred million years ago it was the site of a tropical reef, a few miles south of the equator...

Tropical reefs developed in warm, shallow seas during the Silurian Period, 440 - 410 million years ago. The fossilised remains of one of these reefs are preserved in limestone rocks in parts of England and Wales. This is Wenlock Limestone.

Unfortunately, looking back on reports from earlier this year and last year the place has been piked, no copper remains on the site and there seems to be some activity at the main entrance to the site with the buildings being locked and secured.

Thanks for looking
