Grope Lane
Grope Lane
Half-timbered house on the corner of Grope Lane. I expect residents of Shrewsbury already know the origin of this unusual street name, but it was made public in the Sunday Times less than two weeks after I had taken this photograph - albeit with a couple of ** for decency’s sake.
