Shrewsbury is an historic market town built around a largely unaltered medieval street plan. Its narrow lanes, dotted with 15th- and 16th-century timber-framed buildings, give the town character and charm.
Close to Birmingham and just nine miles from the Welsh border, Shrewsbury is far enough away to offer a relaxing and calm lifestyle but not so remote as to be isolated. There is a huge demand for new homes in the area and a number of developments are available within proximity to the town or along the waterside.
An hour from Birmingham, Shrewsbury is close enough to the big city to have plenty to do, but offers a charming county town lifestyle, complete with all the rural character and activities.
