North Shropshire market town.

Market Drayton Town
Market Drayton

Located in North Shropshire, Market Drayton is a traditional Shropshire market town with origins dating back to before the Domesday book. Modern buildings in the town centre mix with fine examples of 17th century black and white constructions.

The town claims to be "home of the gingerbread", which has been produced in the town for over 200 years.

The Wednesday street market dates back over 750 years, having been established by the Abbot of Combermere as a place to sell the Abbey's produce.
