User-Submitted Notes

Although Shrewsbury castle was once a defensive building it hass been a residential dwelling for several centuries. It's most famous resident being the Scottish civil engineer Thomas Telford who left an indelible mark on the county of Shropshire.
Today the castle serves as a museum for the Royal Shropshire Regiment but you can visit the grounds and Laura's Tower for free.
