About the county of Shropshire

Some of the local attractions include Shrewsbury Abbey, this ancient and yet magnificent Abbey is ranked second only to Canterbury as a favourite destination for pilgrims, Shrewsbury Castle, with its fascinating Regimental Museum and delightful gardens and Rowley's House Museum, which is housed within a timber-framed warehouse and has an adjoining 17th century brick mansion.
