Just returned from a couple of days in the ancient market town of Shrewsbury (Salop).  Handy this scheduling tool isn’t it!  What a beautiful town this is.  Never have I seen so many ancient buildings – all in one place!

 Shrewsbury can count Charles Darwin, Judge Jeffreys and Ellis Peters (the author of the Cadfael books) amongst its famous Salopians.  We have taken loads of pictures.  I will post  a selection  tomrrow.
