Bishops Castle
Bishop's Castle in South Shropshire is an place of outstanding beauty and tranquility. It is much loved by visitors who want to experience unspoilt countryside dappled with small villages and hamlets. It's a place to get away to and enjoy the peace and tranquility that is rapidly departing from other parts of England. There are no motorways and few traffic lights; you'll be deafened by the silence broken only by the calls of circling buzzards

The town has 2 banks, a post office and 3 grocery stores. Add to that a wonderful deli, several interesting cafes and 6 pubs . . . not to mention the 2 breweries
