    Claims in Shropshire


    Shropshire is an English county within the West Midlands region of central England, toward the Welsh border side of the country. The county in fact borders Wales to the West as well as Cheshire to the North, Staffordshire to the East, Worcestershire to the South-East and Herefordshire to the South.

    The county has a surprisingly large number of notable settlements, but the economy and population of Shropshire is largely based around the activities of five major towns. These towns are the county town of Shrewsbury, the new town of Telford to the east of the county, Oswestry in the north-west, Bridgnorth just to the south of Telford, and Ludlow in the south.

    The Etymology And Nicknames Of Shropshire

    The name Shropshire is derived from the Old English word Scrobbesbyrigscīr which can be literally translated as meaning Shrewsbury-shire, referring to the fact that that town was always the major settlement within the county.

    Historically, the county has also always had the abbreviated name of ‘Salop’ which is sometimes still used on envelopes and the like, and comes from the Anglo-French word Salopesberia. For a brief period following the Local Government Act of 1972 too, Salop was in fact the official name of the county but Shropshire was reinstated in 1980 following a campaign led by a local councillor, John Kenyon.

    Modern Day Shropshire

    Today, as could be inferred by the presence of a number of noted settlements, Shropshire does support a comparatively high level of population, which according to the latest census has reached approximately 308,000 permanent residents. This brings the county a number of economic benefits but does also have its downside, such as the fact that it can make accidents and injuries comparatively more likely in the county. Some of these incidents too, can be of the sort which may lead to personal injury compensation claims by Shropshire residents.
