Shrewsbury is an archetypal 'city on a hill', the spires and towers of its churches crowning a sandstone bluff. This study examines the ways in which suburbs were shaped by government, looks at the varying roles of architects and builders, and analyses the extension of utilities, transport networks, sporting facilities, shops and churches.
