The Unicorn Inn, at the bottom of Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury, Shropshire. A 17th Century structure, after the alterations of the 1880's when the right hand side was substantially rebuilt. In the 20th Century the first storey of the left side was completely removed to create a showroom. The Unicorn Inn occupied a timber-framed building rebuilt c.1603.
St Marys Water Lane, Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The gate was of strategic importance in the Medieval period (1066-1547), as it guarded an important entrance to the town. It is the only gate dating from Shrewsbury’s 13th century town walls that still survives. The parliamentary forces are thought to have entered Shrewsbury through these gates during the Civil War (1642-1651).
Hercules before he was moved to the bottom of the Quarry. Victorian ladies were embarrassed by his genitals being 'brazenly displayed' in such a prominent site. He was originally moved from Condover Hall and then Howards Bank before here. He now wears a fig leaf to cover his embarrassment. Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
