Moving to Shropshire?
Shropshire is arguably the loveliest English county, with idyllic landscapes, traditional
villages and very few people there to disturb you on your wanderings. As a result,
it has been strongly disputed over the centuries. Once part of the lands of the
Cornovii, a Celtic Iron Age kingdom, it was heavily occupied by the Romans, who
built the town of Viroconium Cornoviorum, the fourth largest settlement in Britain.
It then passed into the Welsh Kingdom of Powys – and is still known in Welsh poetry
as the “Paradise of Powys” – before being wrested back by the Mercian King Offa
in the 8th century. In the next few centuries the area was attacked repeatedly by
the Danes and fortresses built at Bridgnorth and Chirbury to defend it.
After the Norman conquest large swathes of land were granted to the Normans, who
built castles at many sites including Shrewsbury and Ludlow to defend against the
Welsh. When the border was finally settled in the 14th century, locals expected
peace but no such luck: Richard, Duke of York made Ludlow Castle his base during
the Wars of the Roses. The Industrial Revolution is said to have begun at Ironbridge,
where Abraham Darby perfected the technique of smelting iron with coke. Soon after
this pioneering innovation, Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury. He would, of
course, go on to formulate the theory of evolution. Today, Shropshire gives little
hint of its dramatic past, preferring to allow you to discover it alone.
The climate is generally moderate, with light precipitation in spring and autumn
and an average low of 1°C in winter, rising to around 21°C in summer. Be prepared,
though: the lowest temperature ever recorded in England or Wales was in Edgmond
in 1982, when it reached a daunting -26.1°C.
Shrewsbury, the county town, is a historic market town with a largely unaltered
medieval street plan. Many of the streets have amusing names: Butcher Row, Dogpole,
Grope Lane and Gullet Passage are just a few of them. Shrewsbury Castle, a red sandstone
castle 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 Quarry is a huge public garden in the centre of town. Shrewsbury
is known as the “town of flowers” and its annual Horticultural Show is one of the
largest in Britain. The town is also home to Ditherington Flax Mill, the world’s
first iron-framed building, which is commonly regarded as “the grandfather of the
The only other large town is Ludlow, a market town on the Welsh Marches in the south
of the county. Sights include Ludlow Castle, the medieval walled town, St Laurence
Church and the Bull Hotel, open since the 15th century. Ludlow is renowned for its
gastronomy – there are two three-starred Michelin restaurants and the town is a
pioneer of the slow food movement – and for its thriving arts scene. The countryside
around the town is stunning – take time to walk or drive around it.
Ironbridge and the surrounding area is for many the must-see destination in Shropshire.
The Iron Bridge over the River Severn was the world’s first cast iron arched bridge,
made possible by locally developed technology. Blists Hill Victorian Town is an
open air museum that recreates life in a Victorian village: all the shops and business
are manned by actors trained in the skills required; and premises include a tallow
candle manufactory, a brickworks, a pharmacy, and a working wrought iron works.
