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.
Wykey is a hamlet in Shropshire, England. It is approximately 2 miles north of the larger village of Ruyton-XI-Towns, and is recognised as one of the "XI" towns. In the centre of the village one can find the rare sight of a 19th Century red postbox and red telephone box, which amount to its only facilities. The main office of Quiller Publishing, the UK's largest Country Sports publisher, is also located here.
Hordley is a small and rural village and civil parish in North Shropshire, Shropshire, England. It lies a few miles south of Ellesmere. Hordley takes its name from the Hoord Family of whom Henry de Hoord (c.1170) is the first recorded. "'In 1215, King John confirms to the Prior and Monks of Durham a gift which Henry de Hoord made to them. ' It is thought that the name itself is of Scandinavian origin, there being a family name of Hord in Sweden.
Rednal and West Felton railway station
Rednal & West Felton railway station was a minor station on the GWR’s Paddington to Birkenhead main line. Today this is part of the Shrewsbury to Chester line. The distinctive red brick station building (now a private house) can still be seen on the west side of the line.
Haughton Halt railway station
Haughton Halt was a minor station located north of Shrewsbury on the GWR’s Paddington to Birkenhead main line. It was opened in the nineteen thirties as part of the GWR's halt construction programme, aimed at combatting growing competition from bus services and would primarily have served the adjacent (and now disused) Haughton Airfield. Today the route is part of the Shrewsbury to Chester line. Nothing now remains on the site.
Rednal rail crash
Rednal rail crash was a rail accident that occurred near Rednal station in Shropshire. On 7 June 1865 a permanent way (groundwork and rails) gang were lifting and packing the "up" line 600 yards north of Rednal station on a 1 in 132 gradient that falls from Whittington. A green flag had been set 1100 yards away at the top of the incline as a warning. At 12:29 an excursion train from Birkenhead left Chester for Shrewsbury consisting of 28 coaches and two brake vans and hauled by two locomotives.
