Peter Snow and Historian Son visit beloved Shropshire

 in Shrewsbury On 23rd September, Shrewsbury hosted a visit from veteran broadcaster and past Shropshire resident Peter Snow and his son, TV Historian Dan Snow.

The Snows were in town to present a stage show at the Theatre Severn commemorating the 200th anniversary of the bloody Napoleonic Wars. The fascinating talk promoted their new book ‘The Battle of Waterloo Experience’

Whilst in Shrewsbury, they were delighted to visit Peter’s childhood haunts and revel in the rich history of the medieval town.

The Snows were interviewed by the Shropshire Star newspaper and spoke very fondly of Shropshire, stating “It is one of our favourite places. Shrewsbury is beautifully placed. There is so much history around here such as Ludlow, Ironbridge, Chester – and the history within the town – that I can see us spending quite some time here.”
