Shropshire is a shire of England, demonym Salopian (a funny denomination to French people, which can be turned into a Captain Haddock type of derogatory address (?!)), bordering Wales with important towns being Shrewsbury, Telford, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow.
It is renowned, thanks to the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (with Church Stretton at their centre), as one of the prettiest part of Great Britain, as well as for other sights such as the Wrekin, but is also important for historical spots such as Ironbridge, where the industrial revolution started. It is one of England's most rural and sparsely populated counties. Other places of interest that we visited include Shifnal.
The Shropshire hills, never so wild as to exclude all traces of human shelters.
