Shropshire is a county found in the West Midlands, with a western border to Wales. It also borders Cheshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire. The county town is Shrewsbury in the centre of the county, but the largest town based on population is Telford towards the Staffordshire border. Other notable towns in the county include Market Drayton, Ludlow, Newport, Bridgnorth and Oswestry. Shropshire is home to an Area of Outstanding National Beauty in the Shropshire Hills.
After the end of Roman rule in Britain, Shropshire was subject to various invasions by various parties. A degree of stability was finally established following the 1066 Norman Conquest, as important Normans were given land in the area and castles were built to fortify the county from potential Welsh invasions. In the 16th century, Shropshire’s border with Wales was defined in law, and with the exception of the removal of a few settlements to other counties, the boundaries remain the same now.
In the past, the rural landscape of Shropshire was best known for its agriculture. However, in recent years, the tourism potential of Shropshire’s various historical market towns has been harnessed, and the sectors tying in with those exploits such as hospitality are key employers. Industry remains active in the smaller towns in Shropshire, and Shrewsbury plays a secondary role by often acting as a storage hub prior to distribution. Though independent shops are prevalent in Shropshire, there are also some large organisations based in the region; these include the dairy products company Müller and the Royal Air Force.
For such a pleasant rural landscape, Shropshire appears to represent great value. The average house price is £233,696, which is only £9,000 above the national average, although it must be said that the period houses in the county are likely to cost more. Nonetheless, Shropshire offers a great location for any move, no matter where in the county the house is. The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding National Beauty covers much of the south of the county, while rolling hills cover the north. Shrewsbury and Newport are popular choices for a move, while more rural locations include Cleehill and Myddle.
Shropshire’s population as of 2017 was estimated to be 493,200. 93.8% of the population are White British, meaning the county is slightly less diverse than the national average. Shropshire also has an older population on average, with more over 65s and fewer children in comparison to national figures.
Shropshire’s market towns are all very attractive; with Tudor fronts and various other period features, they all possess an old English charm. Shrewsbury in particular also has a wealth of boutiques and independent shops which are great to browse in. The county has a multitude of great walks, particularly in the Shropshire Hills region where far-reaching viewpoints can be found. There is also history too; Blists Hill is a recreation of a Victorian town, while Wroxeter used to be one of the most important settlements in Roman Britain.
Shropshire is the home of the British Hedgehog Preservation Society and has been since 1982.
