Grow Your Own Dog.....

The jazz festival that I mentioned in my last post took place at Upton on Severn.
In lots of ways the town is almost a step back to the 1950s.
The high street has lots of small independent shops with no multi nationals that we could see.

There are a number of pubs in the town and during the jazz festival they all seemed to host various bands. We went back again earlier this week to have a better look around.

One of the things that really captured our attention was the large dog near the tourist information office...
It looks like a large Old English Sheepdog but it is in fact a plant of some kind.....

It could well catch on...

No need to go to the breeding kennels for your next dog just grow your own.......

Below is a photo of the local garage...usually this style of building would have been modernised but thankfully this one is original and has been maintained like that....

 Here is the high street...... This too hasn't changed much over the years.
 View of the Severn from the pub garden where we had lunch.....
 Finally a picture of the town museum....

It's a few years since I have been to Upton on Severn, and you have made me want to revisit. It's good to see the old buildings preserved and events like the jazz festival encourage visitors. Looking forward to seeing what rides you've done around here.

Funnily enough after we had parked the car at the car park near the garage and started to walk into the town we both realised that we had been there before. We had forgotten we had visited the town during a blues festival.....must have been almost a decade ago..... We'll worth a return visit.
