Shrewsbury Drapers Company is a long-established Guild which was granted a royal charter in 1462. The Guild has been running almshouses continuously since 1444.
Shrewsbury Drapers have owned and maintained 25 Almshouses around Shrewsbury in three different locations-Fairford Place, St Giles and Holy Cross. Their fundraising efforts over the past decade have culminated in the planning and building of Drapers Place, providing an additional 25 units. The 50 units cater for both single and double occupancy and are ideally situated close to amenities and the centre of Shrewsbury.
