The town of Shrewsbury, UK.

I've been out taking a few pics of my home town today, concentrating on the shops, cafes, restaurants and bars for now. I did have another Shrewsbury thread started long ago but I thought it's time for a new one!

Good question! I don't know to be honest. For a while in the late 90s/early 00s that building was a bar called the "Upside-down Flying Crocodile Bar", but I presume the carving pre-dates that.

Nice. I bet there's medieval connection. Little things like that are extremely fascinating!
