Shrewsbury: Gateway House, Castle Gates

Another drawing by my uncle, Eddie Parker.


This is the Gateway and Council House at Castle Gates, Shrewsbury, with the entrance to the former St. Nicholas’s Presbyterian Chapel on the left.

Obviously, the term ‘council house’ didn’t mean quite the same in 1620 as it has since the 19th century. 🙂

Here’s a photograph approximating the same view from 2003.
