As surveyors we appreciate the range of properties in Shropshire including the Georgian houses and half timbered buildings, red brick buildings and local sandstone, there is a great variety. On our visits when carrying out surveys in Shropshire we have enjoyed the unspoilt scenery and the individualness of the towns and villages such as the charming Bishops Castle which has a unique Elizabethan House on Crutches with wooden post supports. Bridgnorth which has stunning views from either The High Town or The Low Town, the former Victorian health resort of Church Stretton, Cosford which is the home of the Royal Air Force Museum, Stokesay Castle a stunning 13th century manor house situated near Craven Arms, Ellesmere a surveyors dream with its Georgian houses and half timbered buildings, the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge which has the world's first cast iron bridge built in 1779 spanning the River Severn. The many museums tell the story of Ironbridge which is regarded as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution; Ludlow known as Shropshire's gastronomic capital as it has a wealth of restaurants and speciality food shops and hosts food fairs, the market town of Madeley which has many historic listed buildings including Woolfe's Barn which was a hiding place for Charles II following his defeat at the Battle of Worcester, Market Drayton the home of gingerbread for over 200 years; the remains of Wenlock Priory are in Much Wenlock and Much Wenlock is the inspiration for the name of one of the official mascots of the 2012 Olympics, Wenlock, as Pierre de Boubertin was so inspired when watching the Much Wenlock Games in the 19th century that he went on to found the modern Olympics, in fact the Much Wenlock Games are still held today. The beautiful market town of Newport, where one of its residents Elizabeth Parker was the inspiration for the character Miss Haversham from Charles Dickens novel Great Expectations, the bustling market town of Oswestry which has an interesting mix of architecture from timber framed houses to Georgian and Victorian; admire the beautiful black and white buildings in the attractive market town of Shifnal, Shrewsbury the birthplace of Charles Darwin; the new town of Telford aptly named after the renowned engineer Thomas Telford; Wellington which is a great location for walkers to explore the Wrekin; the quaint village of Wem which has lots of speciality shops; Whitchurch which is known as the home of tower clocks.
