Some history of Shrewsbury
More information on Shrewsbury to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Shrewsbury from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Shrewsbury. I will try to get around to this page soon, particularly as I have a wealth of material on the pubs.
Have Your Say
If you would like to share any further information on Shrewsbury - perhaps you drank in one of the pubs in the past? Or maybe knew a previous publican running one of the boozers? Whatever the reason it would be great to hear of your stories or gossip. Simply send a message and I'll post it here.

so drunk near to the Armoury on Saturday, as to be incapable of taking charge of a team he was driving. He was found leaning on the shafts of his cart to the imminent
danger of his own life. He was fined 10s. and costs."
