Shrewsbury: Church Street and St. Alkmund’s

The third in a series of drawings by my uncle, Eddie Parker.

This is a view looking from St. Mary’s Street down Church Street towards St. Alkmund’s church. St. Alkmund’s apparently stands at the highest point of the town, and certainly contributes to its distinctive skyline.

And here’s a photograph of approximately the same view, from 2007.

To the left in Church Street, but not really viewable from this angle is the Shrewsbury Arms, better known as The Loggerheads. The pub is notable currently for its musical activities: not only live music, but acoustic and folk music sessions.
