Shawbury village straddles the A53 between Shrewsbury and Market Drayton.

This Shropshire village has grown much as a very important RAF station whose barracks are in neo-Georgian style of 1938, giving a modern, spaciousness to the village. The church is of Grinshill stone with late Norman nave and fine arcades.

Shawbury and Peplow have an entry in the Domesday Book of 1085/86.
