Two views of Castle Street, Bishops Castle 2-Shropshire
The castle was built by Norman bishops of Hereford, as Marcher Lords responsible for the defence of the borderlands between England and Wales. By the end of the Civil War the castle was a ruin and this area is virtually all that remains. Buildings along Castle Street and Church Street are thought to be on the site of the outer boundary of the castle. Narrow streets are one of the features of the town which was established by the first half of the 12th century. This view was taken looking southwards at the lower end of Castle Street, overlooking its junction with the Kerry Ridgeway.
