Shelvock Manor

Shelvock Manor is a house and grounds in a township of the same name near Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England. It was once a place of local importance, and was for more than two centuries the seat of the Thornes, a leading family in Shropshire. The first recorded spelling of Shelvock was Shelfhoc (1175), and later Sselvak & Schelfac (around the year 1270). The name is most likely derived from the Saxon "ac" meaning oak, prefixed by its location on a shelf or hill.

River Perry, Shropshire

The River Perry is a river in Shropshire, England. It rises near Oswestry and flows south to meet the River Severn above Shrewsbury. The channel has been heavily engineered, both to enable water mills to be powered by it, and to improve the drainage of the surrounding land. The middle section crosses Baggy Moor, where major improvements were made in 1777 to drain the moor, and a section of the river bed was lowered in the 1980s, to continue the process.

West Felton

West Felton is a village and civil parish in Shropshire, England. At the 2001 census the parish, which also includes the settlements of Rednal, Grimpo and Haughton, had a population of 1,380. The village originally grew around a Norman castle, whose motte lies next to the church. It was recorded in the Domesday Book as Feltone, and as "Felton by le Knokyn" in 1303. The name Felton probably represents a combination of Old English feld, "open land", and tun, "settlement".
