Shropshire Area Guide
Shropshire is a county of two halves, with the north containing the larger towns and most of the population and the south with a great deal more tranquillity and countryside. The county shares a border and quite a bit of history with Wales to the east not to mention a fair bit of rugged countryside.
In the centre of the county sits Shrewsbury with one of the highest concentrations of historic listed buildings in the country and an original medieval street plan. In contrast, Telford to the west is a new town built largely in the 1960s and 1970s, incorporating older settlements such as Wellington, Madeley and Dawley. The town was used to house slum dwellers from Birmingham in the late twentieth century, which gives the town a completely different feel from the surrounding mostly rural countryside.
The area around Coalbrookdale is known as the birthplace of the industrial revolution due to its coal beds, but while industrialisation has scarred many other areas of the UK, particularly the nearby West Midlands, Shropshire has remained largely untouched, with great expanses or gorgeous countryside including the beautiful Ironbridge gorge formed by the River Severn.
Shropshire is a sparsely populated county of just under 500,000 people. Only 40,000 of those live in South Shropshire. The county is slightly older than the national average although Telford is younger with a slightly more multicultural flavour. There are less affluent areas around Telford while most of the richer residents tend to cluster around Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth.
The county has some of the best and most prestigious schools in the country. Adam's Grammar School and Newport Girls' High School are both ranked within the top thirty in the country and Thomas Telford schools is known as one of the best comprehensive schools in the UK. There are a number of notable public schools, including Shewsbury School, which was once attended by Charles Darwin.
Travel by road is via the M54, which runs from Wellington through Telford to the West Midlands, and by the A5, which runs east to west near to Oswestry, Telford and Shrewsbury. Rail links are patchy, with no direct link to London from the county but some routes from Shrewsbury to North Wales, the North East and the West Midlands.
Amenities and Shopping
If you like big shopping centres then Telford has plenty of these. The Telford Shopping Centre has a Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, Asda, H&M and Waterstones and Telford town centre also has a large Odeon cinema.
Shrewsbury, with its historic centre, offers a different kind of shopping experience. The town has stores across three shopping areas: Darwin, Pride Hill and Riverside. Of these the Parade is the most notable. It is located in an old infirmary with an eclectic mix of independent shops covering music memorabilia, cakes, aromatherapy and gifts. Shrewsbury is a great place to relax with a drink with several medieval pubs in the town centre.
Market Drayton is the biggest town in the north and has a few supermarkets and a regular market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. To the south, Ludlow is a pretty, historic old town, with plenty of attractive independent shops, bakeries and cafes and a medieval ruined castle.
