Shropshire is one of the most lovely and peaceful of English counties, and one of the most rural - yet few know much about it, or even where it is.

The county has an abundance of beautiful and varied countryside, still largely agricultural. Interesting towns and villages are dotted throughout - most, like Shrewsbury and Ludlow, can trace their evolution over the centuries and are steeped in history whilst the largest, Telford, is recent and more modern.

Some of the most spectacular scenery is associated with the South Shropshire Hills, an area that has sometimes been called 'Little Switzerland'. The relatively flat (but deceptively high) Long Mynd offers great views of the surrounding countryside, and is popular with walkers.

Shropshire's location in the region known as The Marches, with Wales bordering its western side, created a need for the building of castles and fortified houses to provide protection in days gone by. The ruins of many of these remain, some in excellent condition.

Shropshire Gallery is a growing collection of photographs taken across the county, images that attempt to show the not-so-well-known together with the more popular. General information on the history, myths and legends of the county has been included alongside.
