Wingate drove me to Church Stretton – a very small country town at the foot of lofty hills. It has a great reputation for salubrity of climate and the walks over the hills in the neighbourhood are extremely pretty and interesting, whilst the views are perhaps as extensive, E. W. N. and S. as any that can be found in this part of the country. There is a good modern Hotel which I am bound to say, seemed to us, more interesting than all the rest put together, for it began to rain when we arrived and had not ceased when we left. But it ceased soon after we took the road back, and we had a very pleasant drive home.
