Not yet, the iron frame and concrete structure are up but it still needs the cladding to be put in place before we'll be able to see what it's going to look like. There's a webcam on the council website.

Whats that in the foreground?
Could it be, that Shrewsbury also has the biggest dog in the world?

It's an art, they are placed on roundabouts to distract drivers.

What a beautiful city! I'm kicking myself that I didn't visit when I was in Britain last year. Oh well, next time.

Thanks Jonesy.

Aberystwyth is on the edge of the world, Shrewsbury is the nearest place that you can make contact with civilisation!

So whats happening with the old football ground? Last time i was up the 'New Meadow' was nearly finished - i expect by now its finished. I suppose they are going to build a load of bland and overpriced flats on the gay meadow.

Yep, you're right! My first contact with civilisation was Birmingham though, haha! I've been to Shrewsbury's train station many times but i've yet to venture beyond the station.

Gay Meadow has now been demolished, and you guessed right, they are building riverside apartments on the site

Yeah thought so. I remember years ago they were planning to build a foot bridge in that area, i'll bet thats not part of the plan. Have you seen any renderings of the new development? Any good?

Do you have any shots of the New Meadow or did I just pass by them without noticing? I am one of the few Americans with an STFC jersey, after all.
Out of curiosity do you ever happen to pass through Pipegate or Woore? I am a Woore, though my family is from Monmouthshire as far back as we can trace.

Yes, there can't be too many STFC jerseys in Tampa!

I know Woore, passed through there a few times but I'm not familiar with Pipegate.

Here's a link to photos of the New Meadow, I didn't take any as it is on the edge of town rather than in the centre.

Marvellous tour, looks like a typical English town with some quite nice gems to offer

And it also has something of Lübeck (German hanse city in the north) to it - due to the island position of the old town and the various brick buildings. Interesting tudor house style by the by, as in general there are in England.

What's going on in Shrewsbury, are there any good clubs, pubs, bars or regular festivities respectively events?
And by the way, did you ever thought about to move out of the provincial backwater into some bustling metropolis (like Chester e.g.)?
