John Betjeman once described this South Shropshire town as 'a long airy curving street of brick Georgian houses and shops interspersed with genuine half-timber, the Rea brook making a splash at the bottom of the hill,' and it is clear through strolling through this quaint market town that a certain English charm, often lost in other parts of the country, has been preserved.
