I'm staying near the statue and because of its height, stone is falling from it in high winds. It has been cordoned off so hopefully no one will get hit from falling debris but be careful.

The column is boarded off as parts have fallen and been a hazard. Hopefully they will put some repairs in place

There is work being done here, and it is closed for the time being. You should phone the tourist information office before setting off to visit it. When it is open, it is well worth a visit.

I was a tourist in my home town of Shrewsbury for a week this summer! An interesting experience! This was one of the attractions I visited with my son who is 15. I have been meaning to take him there since he was 5 and I finally got around to it this year! It is a short and simple visit... More
