Shrewsbury books: History & Heritage

Around Shrewsbury: v. 2 (Images of England S)
Around Shrewsbury: v. 2 (Images of England S)

This collection of over 200 archive pictures, many never seen before published, highlight some of the changes and developments that have taken place in and around the county town of Shrewsbury during the last century. Important events are recalled, including a visit by King George V in 1914, alongside aspects of everyday life, from schools and churches, historic buildings and pubs - to changing modes of transportation, shops and local industry. Life in some of the surrounding villages is also remembered, including Acton Burnell, Dorrington, Longnor, Baschurch and Shawbury. The county town stands at the centre of an area of fertile farmland but its agricultural importance has greatly diminished over the years as the town has developed as an administrative centre and a magnet for shoppers. Accompanied by supporting text, this book is a valuable pictorial history which will reawaken nostalgic memories for some, while offering a unique glimpse of the past for others.
