Shrewsbury, Shropshire's county town, has been an important trading and administrative centre since medieval times because of its position on the River Severn close to the Welsh border. Much of the town's wealth derives from the wool trade, and this is reflected in the timber-framed buildings from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries many of which remain today and are listed. The naturalist Charles Darwin was born in the town and spent his early life there. In `Shrewsbury History Tour' author Dorothy Nicolle takes readers on a fascinating journey to see how the town has altered during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With the help of a handy location map, this pocket-sized guide explores the streets, buildings and landmarks, and discovers the well-known and hidden aspects of Shrewsbury's heritage together with its architectural gems.
