Wonderful job. Some of those areas are so cute.

Ok, an update, some pictures from yesterday, an afternoon walk into the town, around the park, and a look at some of the shops. It's interesting to see how many of these shops have changed in the few years since I began this thread...

About 3 minutes after leaving home we arrive at the river walkway that leads to the main park in the town.



A view of some townhouses on a hill from the riverside path.


Then the park itself, people out enjoying the cool autumn sunshine












A quick rest in the gardens at the centre of the park. The summer flowers now replaced by autumn leaves.

Then out of the park and into the central area but first a quick look into an atmospheric churchyard, with houses and apartments overlooking the gravestones






Shopping on a Saturday, seems like the whole town has the same idea.

Looking in windows, looking at buildings, looking at menus, my favourite shopping activity, better than buying stuff and cheaper!

I've only been to Shrewsbury once - I found it very attractive.

I have, however, been to other places in Shropshire - in fact we were looking at moving there at one point. Shropshire is one of the loveliest English counties - and so little visited by outsiders or foreign visitors.

For a real taste of England - outside of the south-east and the big cities - then Shropshire is certainly worth consideration. In my opinion, of course.

Thanks guys, glad you liked them. Yes there many pleasant places in the wider county too and its within easy reach of Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham for a day trip.

Terrific photos! Brought back some memories. My travel companion and I spent a few days there in July of 11 (we are from the US) and out of our 25 days in England, this was one of our favorite places. Everyone was very friendly, the town was beautiful, and we met some teachers who were home from teaching English in other parts of Europe and they partied with us(a neat indoor/outdoor pub near Fish St?--something like that). Anyway we had the greatest time with them. Also drove out to Church Stretton and climbed the Long Mynd---just stunning--and I now understand A E Housman's reasons for loving those "blue remembered hills". Our American ears were humored, though, by the STRONG opinions of how to correctly pronounce Shrewsbury. Some insisted it should be pronounced SHROWSbury whereas other's were just as adamant that it be called SHROOSbury. Great time in a great town! Thanks for all the wonderful pics.

Yes, that topic is the subject of endless debate with both sides insistent that they are correct. Basically you can pick whichever you prefer, it doesn't really matter as you will be wrong for 50% of the population whichever you choose.

Glad you enjoyed your time in the area, maybe we'll welcome you back some day.

PS, would this be the indoor/outdoor pub you visited?

Jonesy,

I don't think that's the pub. I Facebooked one of the people we met there who is from Shrewsbury and I'm sure she will get back with me to tell me the name. What I remember is that we walked into what looked like a "shut", were immediately in a sort of courtyard, and if we went straight it took us into the outside area(perhaps up a few steps-not sure), and if we sort of veered right and then straight that took us inside. We could also enter from the right side of the outside area. For some reason I keep thinking it had the term "Bank" in it's name. Also nearby were those 2 opposing churches, and one of the older professors told us that the towers were built to compete with one another.
I'll let you know when she gets back to me.
I wonder if you know any of those teachers? Is Shrewsbury a small enough town where many people can know each other? All in their 20's 30's and an older professor as well. Such a fun time and town! I really want to return again.

Ah, I think you are maybe talking about The Old Post Office pub?





The town itself is home to around 75,000 people so its not quite small enough to know everybody but I do know a few teachers here, they mostly teach at local schools though rather than in other countries...

YES! That's it! How did you happen to have these pics? Just looking at those is making me feel nostalgic again.

Well, I don't want to give their full names on a public forum but some first names of this group are: Alice(teaches in Italy), James, another James(older--sort of leader), Rosa(German girlfriend of another tall lanky witty Englishman whose name I have forgotten), and Louie(VERY VERY funny young dirty minded Welshman--this guy was a riot and I hope you do know him!). Most of them teach in Shrewsbury.
