Local Facts

Shrewsbury on Wiki

Shrewsbury is known as a town with significant medieval heritage, having been founded ca. 800 AD.

It was in the late Middle Ages 14th/15th Centuries when the town was at its height of commercial importance.

This was mainly due to the wool trade, a major industry at the time, with the rest of Britain and Europe, especially with the River Severn and Watling Street as trading routes.
