Shropshire (which was oddly abbreviated to Salop between 1974 and 1980) is a large sparsely populated county in the heart of England straddling the hilly area between Wales and Birmingham and covering an area of 1,350 square miles with a population of 400,000. The county is cut in 2 from north west to south east by the river Severn. The main commercial activities of Shropshire are Sheep and Cattle farming. The name comes from the latin Civitas Scrobbensis - 'the city around the scrub folk'. The north Shropshire landscape is quite flat but in the south rise the 'blue remembered hills' of local poet AE Houseman - the Shropshire Hills. The best known of the Shropshire Hills are Wenlock Edge, The Long Mynd and the Stiperstones.
Shropshire has a very attractive county town in Shrewsbury (which began life as the Saxon town of Scrobbesbryrig), possibly the finest tudor town in Britain with winding medieval streets of higgledy-piggledy half timbered houses. The attractions of Shrewsbury include Rowley's House Museum, Shrewsbury Abbey and the Shrewsbury Quest where visitors search for clues to solve a medieval murder mystery. Charles Darwin was born and educated in Shrewsbury.

Telford, Oswestry and Ludlow are the other main towns in the county and most of the rest of the Shropshire population lives in Telford. A number of museums commemorate this birthplace of the industrial revolution and Ironbridge Gorge is a major tourist attraction to the county.
