Father and son professional photographers John and Mike Hayward have worked together to share their enthusiasm for the county they live in and love. Their joy in the Shropshire landscapes, towns and villages shines through on every page.
The dedication needed to catch that shot of hot air balloons hovering over Old Oswestry hill fort in early morning, or sunset at Pole Bank pond, the highest point on the Long Mynd, cannot be over-estimated.
And the pleasure they take in capturing the people of this county – from the Severn Valley Railway steam enthusiasts at Highley, to cricketers at the idyllic village ground at Burwarton, to the priest blessing his congregation in the dodgem cars at Ludlow’s May Fair – is clear from every shot.
Fans of the Haywards’ first book A Year in Shropshire will find over
160 new images of the county here, each one reminding them why Shropshire is one of England’s most glorious counties.
