Some history of the Drovers' Arms on Cheshire Street at Market Drayton in the county of Shropshire.


The Drovers' Arms was located on the eastern side of Cheshire Street. The pub was demolished when the site was used for the construction of a branch of the Manchester and Liverpool District Banking Company, a structure erected in 1870.
