SJ5110 : Welcome to Shrewsbury

taken 10 years ago, near to Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Great Britain

Welcome to Shrewsbury
Welcome to Shrewsbury
A very modern mediaeval town; traffic chaos, expensive parking, all the usual chain stores & loads of wonderful pubs. Yes, welcome to Shrewsbury (or as it used to be spelt: Shroesbury which may give you a hint as to its pronunciation). The town's name has also been spelt, Scropesbyrig or Scrobbesbyrig; which I understand to be Anglo-Saxon English (the language we used to use before we spoke American) for a fortified place of a person named Scrobb. In some ways I'm glad we no longer use that term as anyone from the town could possibly be called a Scrobber.
