Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is Castle Gates House, a beautiful, old house, built, not surprisingly, close to Shrewsbury Castle.

It was built in the early 16th century with a timbered frame.

I cannot find much history connected with the house other than it is a listed building and was originally built on Dogpole. It was moved to its present position c1702 by the Earl of Bradford, its original site being developed with what is now the Guildhall.

Shrewbury Town was a real delight to explore. It has a wealth of really old buildings mingling comfortably with the new developments.

My good wishes to you, from a surprisingly bright and tranquil N.W. England, Bev :-)
