Every now and again, after one of the more unlikely of the Shropshire place names, I half expect you to turn to one side, Anna Russell-like, and say "I'm not making this up, you know."

"Word War II"? Was this hitherto unknown verbal conflict about whether a place called Mytton Dingle existed?

Mytton Dingle sounds like a character from that cartoon on the inside back page of the New Statesman .

It now says World War, thanks.

Mytton Dingle is a very steep climb. A better way up from Stiperstones village to the ridge is Perkins Beach Dingle.

Thanks, Jonathan, some of us still find war deaths moving.
