Friday 25 May - Shrewsbury in the Rain

Plate of the Shropshire and North Wales Assurance Co. whose records date from 1780.
On the wall of a building at the bottom of Shoplatch 
It rained all day today - in consequence the only picture I took outside is shown above.  Linda and Frances were here for the day so we had to do indoor things.  We had lunch at the Coach and Horses where an anticipated small sandwich turned into a fairly large plate with salad, chips and Yorkshire pudding.

The market provided a great deal of interest.
The main floor can be best appreciated from the upper level
A great addition is the Gin Palace - Gindifferent.  They have some 90 different gins and the server was very knowledgeable


The tasting went well and a second course was necessary.

As the market was closing we opened our umbrellas and found a shop selling old comics and other bric a brac  before walking up Pride Hill and looking at the view from the car park of The Parade  Shopping Centre, formerly the Salop Infirmary.

From there we took water lane down to the river and walked along to the English Bridge.

Dinner this evening was at the Tudor House.
