Ironbridge in the Severn Valley
Shropshire, or Salop, is an inland county of England along its border with Wales. Traditionally the county was bounded by the English counties of Cheshire; Staffordshire; Worcestershire and Herefordshire; and the historic Welsh counties of Denbighshire; Flintshire; Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire.

Shropshire is one of England's most rural and sparsely populated counties, although it also played an important role in the Industrial Revolution.

The county town is the history town of Shrewsbury, although the new town of Telford, built around the towns of Wellington, Dawley and Madeley, is the largest town in the county.

Much of Shropshire was previously within Wales, and formed the eastern part of the ancient Kingdom of Powys. It was annexed to Saxon Mercia by King Offa in the eighth century.
