The town began as the early capital of the Welsh Kingdom of Powys. Translated from Old English, its original name of “Scrobbesburh” means “the fortified place in the bushes”.
Over several centuries, Shrewsbury was the site of many conflicts, particularly between the English and Welsh. It was besieged by the latter in 1069, eventually being repelled by William the Conqueror.
In 1403, the Battle of Shrewsbury took place a few miles north of the town centre, involving King Henry IV and Henry Hotspur Percy. The King emerged victorious, an event celebrated in William Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act 5.
Many hundreds of years later, in 1809, it was the birthplace of Charles Darwin and is where he spent 27 years of his life. You can soak up the rich history of this place before or after stopping in an Afternoon Shrewsbury establishment.
