The ceremonial county of Shropshire is now split up into the administrative county of Shropshire and the unitary authority of Telford and Wrekin borough.
Shrewsbury is a large market town in the centre of the county, and has traditionally been regarded with suspicion, often hostility, by the rest of the county, particularly by the inhabitants of the very rural South West (although since the 1960s, that hostility has been diverted toward Telford).
Shrewsbury itself is a polarised town, with a very affluent district around Copthorne which contrasts sharply with the poorer suburbs of Bayston Hill, Castlefields, Ditherington and Harlescott.

 Guardian | World's first iron-framed building saved
Nobody passing a scruffy, half-derelict industrial estate on the outskirts of Shrewsbury would imagine that one of the battered, red-brick structures is the ancestor of today's skyscrapers - the first iron-framed building in the world.
It was built in 1796 by John Marshall, a linen magnate, and his partners, the Benyon Brothers, who had good reason to dread fire in mill buildings: they had just suffered £10,000 worth of damage at a Leeds mill, of which only half was covered by insurance.
He first went on a pilgrimage to Ditherington in 1962, when its importance had only just been realised and it was still in use as a malting, and in good condition.

Ditherington was built in 1796, part of the empire being created by Leeds-based industrialist John Marshall and designed by his business partner Charles Bage.
The House Detectives also hope Ditherington will shed light on the men, women and children who have slipped through history - the ordinary workers who laboured at the mill all their lives.

 Guardian Unlimited | Arts news | Battle cry from head of English Heritage
English Heritage has had some recent successes, notably the spectacular acquisition of Ditherington Flax Mill, on the edge of Shrewsbury, a mouldering complex of derelict mill buildings which conceals a 1796 structure of fabulous historical importance, the first iron framed building in the world, the great-grandfather of the American skyscrapers.
He believes Ditherington's future will probably include being publicly accessible as an English Heritage store, to show off the unique interior and also regenerate the run-down post-industrial side of the city.
However, on a range of issues including the building proposals for the south-east, the myriad tall towers punching the London skyline, and the plans to regenerate the urban north by demolishing thousands of homes, English Heritage has either objected in vain, or been side-lined.
