Older parts of Shrewsbury bristle with narrow medieval passageways, or shuts as we call them in Shropshire. Their names often reflect what was once sold there – Grope Lane being a good example!
Other clues to Shrewsbury’s colourful past can be found all over the town: the cross in Pride Hill which marks the place of execution of rebellious Welshmen; the Bellstone, a parish boundary marker of granite, which first inspired Darwin to study geology; and St Mary’s church spire, from which the ill-fated showman Robert Cadman fatally miscalculated his new method of crossing the Severn.
