Shropshire – an old map by John Speed


An Old Map of Shropshire by John Speed

This County was known for being the coldest in the kingdom. This did not trouble John Speede, who said of Shropshire, “Wholesome is the air, delectable and good, yielding the spring and the Autumn seed-time and hottest in a temperate condition and affordeth health to the inhabitants in all seasons of the year”.

Much of the county was uplands with isolated hills such as The Wrekin and Slipperstones. The river Severn connected Shrewsbury to the port of Bristol carrying many cargo laden square-rigged barges downstream. In 1552 Edward V1 founded the school at Shrewsbury which served, not just the town, but the whole of Wales.
