Shrewsbury is the county town of Shropshire, England. It is on the River Severn and has a population of approximately 72,000. Shrewsbury is a market town whose centre has a largely unspoilt medieval street plan and over 660 listed buildings, including several examples of timber framing from the 15th and 16th centuries. Shrewsbury Castle, a red sandstone fortification, and Shrewsbury Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery, were founded in 1074 and 1083 respectively by the Norman Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery.

The town is the birthplace of Charles Darwin. Horticulture remains popular, and the Shrewsbury Flower Show is one of the largest horticultural events in England. Located 14 km east of the Welsh border, Shrewsbury serves as the commercial centre for Shropshire and mid-Wales, with a retail output of over £299 million per year and light industry and distribution centres, such as Battlefield Enterprise Park, on the outskirts. The A5 and A49 trunk roads cross near to the town, and five railway lines meet at Shrewsbury railway station.

  1. Never even heard of it, but looks fantastic - love that quote - that's what I think is the difference between Australia and pretty much everywhere...

  2. I don't know if I agree with your quote. England has it all, I love the countryside and the cities.

  3. That quote is so true and thought-provoking. Especially now that America seems to be on the path of tearing down all it's history. Gorgeous scene.

  4. I sure would love to explore more of England. I've only spent time in London.

  5. I like Neil Gaiman. Great author.
    Good shot too. Thank you for hosting.

  6. I've always been interested in Charles Darwin and all things Darwinian. (My computer didn't ask me to change the word 'Darwinian' ...I wonder how many people can say that about their names.)
    And, as a Canadian, I love the quotation about Britain and the US. I love the architecture in Britain, and this photo has plenty of the features I consider quintessentially British, particularly the half-timbered building on the left. There are some wonderful examples of stone and brick buildings all over Britain, but the half-timbering is my favourite.
