We are on the outskirts of the village Ryton, which lies 5 miles south of Shrewsbury.
Shrewsbury boasts 660 listed buildings, and a museum can be visited in the Music Hall, it was founded by the Saxons and developed mostly by the Tudors.
The town centre consists of Medieval streets which are lined with unique buildings containing original shops in streets with names like Butcher Row, Fish Street and Grope Lane.
Founded in 1083, the Shrewsbury Abbey was once centre of Norman and Medieval power in the region as well as the centre of a daily prayer, study and work for a community of monks. It’s still a place of worship today and well worth a visit.
Shrewsbury Castle was once in place to guard the town, inside the walls lies the museum of the Shropshire Regiments, which is dedicated to the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry.
Also close to the equally historic Church Stretton and Much Wenlock.
