Bishop’s Castle is a small market town in Shropshire, 22 miles south-west of Shrewsbury, and within 2 miles of the Welsh Border.

It grew up around a Norman castle built by a bishop of  Hereford, received a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1573, and enjoyed a colourful political life as a rotten or pocket borough. It maintains its historical role as an important focal point in a sparsely-populated rural area, offering a wide range of facilities and services.

This book, written by a number of local authors, offers readers a broad view of the origins and historical development of a rather remarkable town.
