Britain at its Best: The Daily Mail visits Shrewsbury
"Darwin boarded at Shrewsbury School from 1818. The small square in front of the original school building is home to a statue of him — but he sits with his back to the entrance. He did not much care for his schooldays. Indeed, his teachers branded him ‘an average student’.
There’s nothing average about Shrewsbury, however. Today, the medieval passageways (known locally as shuts) and cobbled streets of the town centre are home to intriguing independent boutiques and cosy coffee shops."
