In April 2019 local artist and award-winning architect James St Clair Wade began work on a project to record the historic streetscape of Shrewsbury in a series of unique architectural views allowing the whole length of each street to be seen simultaneously. Wyle Cop, High Street, Mardol, Quarry Place, St. John's Hill, Shoplatch, Pride Hill, Castle Street, Castle Foregate, St. Mary's Place, St. Mary's Street, Windsor Place, Dogpole, the south side of Town Walls, Milk Street, and Belmont are now complete. Further work will be published as the project progresses.
The documentary below made by Andrew Spicer of Fairholme Films gives an insight into the process of producing a Streetscape drawing and some background to the project as a whole.
Progress can be followed on the maps below. Completed streets are outlined in red.
