Drapers Hall

Most of the text about the history of the Shrewsbury Drapers Company is reproduced as extracts from ‘Drapers Hall’ by Nigel Sturt, Richard Raven and Madge Moran (Published by The Drapers Hall Preservation Trust, produced by RJL Smith & Associates, Much Wenlock, Shropshire, ISBN 1 872665 49 7) by kind permission of the authors and The Drapers Hall Preservation Trust. Copies of the booklet are usually available at The Drapers Hall Restaurant and at selected local bookshops.

We are grateful to  Nigel Hinton-Draper, who provided much of the content for this site.
