The Quarry (Shrewsbury)

The Quarry is a lovely and historic park at Shrewsbury, overlooking the River Severn.

The main entrance is in Claremont Bank.

Highlights include statuary, tree lined avenues, sunken ornamental gardens, a lake and a memorial garden to the Queen Mother.

The excellence of Shrewsbury`s parks is largely explained by the fact that Percy Thrower was the Parks Officer.

The Shrewsbury Flower Show is the world`s longest running horticultural show to have been held continuously in one location.
