The shop that was 1-Wistanstow, Shropshire
Standing across the road from the lychgate this building in the 50s and early 60s was the former Wistanstow post office and village shop, owned and run by Mr and Mrs Shufflebotham. Many are the times that this Geographer went in to buy sweets. The village, named after St Wystan, is sited on the Roman road between Wroxeter (Uriconium) and Leintwardine (Bravinium) and the parish church dates from Norman times with many features of interest. Nearby is The Monument - aka Flounders Folly (opening restricted, see website) - from where, on top of Callow Hill, there are wide-ranging views. Wistanstow is worth a visit is my unbiased opinion - my late mothers family, Coles, were from Grove Bank. Time photo taken not available.
