Tuesday 24 November - Shrewsbury Market

No matter where you look Shrewsbury has an amazing collection of interesting buildings
Butchers Row
The Shrewsbury two story market was open today.  It opens Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and Thursday mornings.  We went in good time to get a seat at the fishmongers, there are only twelve places and it can be difficult to get a reservation later in the week.  The food is fresh and well prepared.

The Cornish crab platter went very well with a glass of Sancerre
Just looking around provides a lot of interest.  We purchased a hand raised pork pie that was made in Ironbridge.

This coupkle were selling very good scones.  They billed themselves as the Original Goon Show
Heard from a couple of men passing by, "So I grabs one of these and throws it at the guy.  It 'it 'im on the back of 'is 'ead and knocked 'im out."  High praise indeed - they were also pretty edible.
 Replete with fish we set out to make a reservation at the muliplex cimema then passed by Sutton Bridge Junction box, crossed the river at Coleham and walked by the river as far as the Welsh bridge.

The Darwin monument across the river from the Theatre Severn can  be seen better this time of year when the leaves are off the trees.
