Steeped in history and almost encircled by the River Severn, Shrewsbury is the spectacular county town of Shropshire. Largely unspoilt, the centre is home to over 660 listed buildings noted for their timber frames and built around its original medieval street plan.

With a wide variety of high street and independent retailers, fine dining restaurants, cafes and pubs, it is a popular destination for tourists and residents alike, playing host to a series of popular food, arts and horticultural festivals throughout the year.
The town’s railway station marks the meeting point of five different train lines - offering direct services to Chester, Crewe and Manchester to the north, Hereford and Cardiff to the south, Birmingham, Telford and Wolverhampton to the East and Swansea to the West. The A5 and A49 trunk roads also converge in the town, providing valuable vehicle access to the surrounding towns and villages.
The riverside Theatre Severn provides a spectacular venue for concerts, plays and comedy shows, while fans of more active pursuits can take advantage of a range of fitness and leisure facilities, picturesque golf courses and even adventure rope courses in the vicinity.
Home to a beautiful collection of 3 and 4-bedroom properties, Oakridge Gardens is close to local pubs and supermarkets and just a short distance from Meole Brace Retail Park.
