Church & Castle
Church & Castle
The barn of the castle was, in 1284, the meeting place of the 'FIRST' full English Parliament, summoned by Edward I, whilst he was in Shrewsbury to deal with the 'Welsh Problem'.
Inside the church is the tomb of Sir Robert Lee (died 1591), an ancestor of General Robert. E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army during the American Civil War.
