The county of Shropshire lies in England’s West Midlands, between Birmingham and Wales. Known as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, one of its most prominent landmarks is the Ironbridge Gorge – a UNESCO World Heritage site that’s home to the world’s first and oldest working iron bridge. The rural landscape of Shropshire is dotted with many quaint villages and market towns dating back to medieval times.

    The Shropshire Hills Neighborhood of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers the southern part of the county, where you can explore rolling hills, pine forests, river valleys, and even one of the most well-preserved bogs in Britain.
