QUIET COBBLED WAY OF OLD FISH STREET

QUIET COBBLED WAY OF OLD FISH STREET

It is Shrewsbury's pride to cherish the beauteous survivals of its past which have made its modern reputation by reminding its counties visitors of the part the old town played in English history. There is little that is modern in old Fish Street, which runs up from Milk Street to join Butcher Row. In the distance is the tower of St. Julian's, and over the roofs to the left rises the spire of St. Alkmund's, both of old foundation, but both rebuilt in the 18th century save for their towers. Notice the old-fashioned lamp, which, nevertheless, uses electric light.
