From the rear side cover: Bishop’s Castle is a small market town in Shropshire, 22 miles south-west of Shrewsbury, and within 2 miles of the Welsh Border. It grew up around a Norman castle built by a bishop of  Hereford, received a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1573, and enjoyed a colourful political life as a rotten or pocket borough. It maintains its historical role as an important focal point in a sparsely-populated rural area, offering a wide range of facilities and services. This book, written by a number of local authors, offers readers a broad view of the origins and historical development of a rather remarkable town.

Condition of the book is generally excellent. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a price printed and a small price sticker, both on the rear side cover.
