Bishops Castle is another favourite Farrell destination – a sleepy rural town in the Shropshire-Welsh borderland. It is full of quirky and ancient houses, though this one at the top of the town must surely take the prize for being the most smile-inducing. I thought this pared down photo would tick all Becky’s boxes (square ones naturally).
But I was sure you would like to see the full picture too:
And the houses at the bottom of the town, sporting their Michaelmas Fair-Steam Rally banners:

All very jolly! There are areas in Cape Town that have similarly colored houses as in your second photo but none with circles!
Haha. I have a similar picture for the challenge.
oh wow – what a brilliant square Tish, and so many squares and circles within it. Think you get the gold stars today 😀
Ooo-eeeh! Not had gold stars for more yonks than I care to think about. Thank you, Becky.
Such jolly images, Tish. Love the colours, which would definitely not be allowed in our community. We have to be much more boring. 😀
I can’t think of anywhere else in Shropshire that has such jolly house exteriors. It is a very independently minded community.
That looks like a wonderful place! The painted houses remind me of Galway.
Definitely a town worth visiting, and especially if you like real ale which is brewed at the bottom of the main street and the top of the main street 🙂
Lovelovelove those polka dots. I can see why this place is one of your favorites.
It ticks an awful lot of my boxes, and the surrounding landscapes are blissful.
Just love the spotty house! What a lovely place to visit ;0)
Lots of nice places to stay and eat too. Though all a bit dreamy 🙂
What a lovely house. Happy women’s day Memsahib.
Many thanks for those great good wishes, Brian 🙂
I’ve seen it! Yee-ha! 🙂 🙂 Even got a photo or two somewhere.
Great minds, what! It’s a great place for taking photos.
What a lovely quirky town 🙂
It absolutely is. Stories bursting out all over the place, including the mystery of the unknown 18th century African buried in the parish churchyard.
I have spent the last 2 weeks visiting hubby in ITU – the decor is random circles but are nowhere near as cheery as your Bishops Castle. p.s. did you shoot these in square or crop? I am going to try the former and see what crops up!
Oh dear, Laura. All the best to your other half. And to you too. All so stressful and upsetting. As to the squares, they are crops. I’ve never done squares before this mad March effort, and then discovering a magic squaring tool on my editing programme. I’m finding it really interesting seeing things in squares.
Well spotted Tish. Fully deserving the Gold Star 🙂
Cheers, Brian. Appreciate the commendation 🙂 🙂
Made me smile all these miles away, Tish. 🙂
The house makes me think of champagne bubbles. I wonder if it feels bubbly inside too 🙂
That house was just MADE for this challenge 😀
Wasn’t it just 🙂
I’m glad you shared the zoom out: I was just wondering if the 1st photo was a mural!!!! What a fun place to visit!
I love this!
