The Little Book of Shropshire is an intriguing, fast-paced, fact-packed compendium of places, people and events in the county, from its earliest origins to the present day.
Here you can read about the important contributions Shropshire has made to the history of the nation, and meet some of the great men and women, the eccentrics and the scoundrels with which its history is littered.
Packaged in an easily readable `dip-in' format, visitors and locals alike will find something to remind, surprise, amuse and entertain them in the remarkably engaging little book.
