The Shrewsbury Chronicle, one of the oldest weekly newspapers in the country, began publishing in 1772. The items here have all been discovered by Alan Brisbourne during his personal historical researches and we are indebted to him for sending them to Histo. Alan continues to unearth and send to us additional items and in future the PDF will be enlarged with any new material.
