Shrewsbury is set amidst glorious countryside near to the Welsh Borders, and is one of England's finest medieval market towns. The town centre is packed with timber-framed black & white buildings, steep narrow streets and alleyways. The River Severn forms a loop around the town centre offering gentle riverside walks. Shropshire provides a suburb location in which to work and live. There is ample opportunity to participate in outdoor activities including walking and cycling in the surrounding Shropshire countryside. There are also good motorway and rail links to Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.
