    Hi, we are thinking of moving to Shrewsbury in Shropshire or a surrounding big village as it looks like it could work for our jobs plus we have family up there. Has anyone made the move and can share experiences? Thank you so much.

    Hi Olly,

    We live in Telford, just down the road from Shrewsbury. It’s a lovely area – anything specific you wanted to know about?

    An answer from a local

    Shrewsbury Town Centre, better to avoid the Northern side.
    Roman Road, Kennedy Road and Porthill and surrounds are smart.
    Copthorne, the Mount and newer estates in Radbrook and Sutton farm a nice in between option.
    Most of the villages are nice. For walking head South, Pontsbury, Church Stretton and Bishops Castle.
    The A49 is an accident blackspot and traffic can be dreadful.
    Bishops Castle has a lot of ‘outsiders’ and is very arty and quirky, the same in Ludlow which is quite monied area and foody. House prices are generally cheaper in the South but outside of those areas.
    Lots of private schools. Priory School and Belvedere amongst the better state options.

    They call Shropshire the graveyard of ambition in that most people who move here stay here (I am a case example).I live in Shrewsbury and am very happy here; it feels safe for myself and my children. Lots of interesting people too. I suggest that you come up and explore a little…
