Notable history

Wyle Cop is a beautiful example of Shrewsbury’s architectural history. Overlooking the street are many of our town’s 16th and 17th century timber-framed buildings, and the Cop is home to 39 of Shrewsbury’s almost 800 listed buildings!

The Lion Inn, situated at the top of Wyle Cop, was a coaching inn central to many routes through the Midlands. A coach run from London to Shrewsbury was completed in 16 hours during the 1700s by a coach known as the Shrewsbury Wonder, which was based at the Lion Inn.
