Albrighton, Shropshire

Albrighton village High Street has not altered too much over the years - the half timbered inns and Georgian facades still make the street as picturesque as it was when the lime trees were planted back in 1832.

Some sources say the lime trees were planted by a Dr Bidwell, others say a former Earl of Shrewsbury was responsible. Early in the 1600's, Albrighton was noted for making buttons and then in the 1700's clock making flourished. By 1880 it was bricks, but by and large, agriculture was the main industry before the building of the railways.

Albrighton was granted Borough status in 1303 on account of its remoteness from Shrewsbury. That was renewed in 1662 but it seemed to lapse again by the 19th century. A Mace confirming its borough status was discovered for auction at Southerby's and this was purchased for £359 in 1948. The Borough status meant that there was a Justice of the Peace who could order the arrest of criminals. A small jail and stocks stood somewhere near to the Crown, whilst a room above it was used for various village meetings and transactions. There was also a Toll House nearby.

Today you will find a warm welcome from friendly villagers and shop keepers, local independent shops and restaurants. At Bowling Green Lane, Albrighton, David Austin has created what many consider to be one of the most beautiful, fragrant rose gardens in the world. Explore the 5 individually themed gardens, which are home to over 700 different rose varieties, including the National Collection of English Roses.
