Bishops Castle is a small market town in the South West of Shropshire in England that is situated approximately 20 miles North West of Ludlow and 20 miles South West of Shrewsbury. As well as being a thriving market town with strong agricultural traditions the town is also a ‘Walkers are Welcome Here’ town, having won the award in 2008. A major reason why Bishops Castle is so popular with walkers is due to its proximity to the Shropshire Way, an important walker’s thoroughfare. Despite having a population of only 1,630 according to the 2001 census, the popularity of the town with walkers and hikers does therefore mean that for injury lawyers Bishops Castle is a more common source of compensation claims than you may expect.
