Telford Through Time

by Allan Frost

Part of the Through Time Series

Telford Through Time Synopsis

The designated 'new town' of Telford in Shropshire received its name in 1968; in fact, it is not a new town but rather a conurbation of townships and villages whose story goes back 3,000 years. In recent years, the area governed by Telford & Wrekin Council has been extended to include a wider area - and history - than originally conceived. The Telford landscape is an ever-changing canvas in which so much has disappeared forever under the banner of progress. New roads, housing estates, shopping malls, business parks and enterprise zones have restructured the local economy and affected ways of life. Using a selection of illustrations from different periods, the reader is encouraged to examine these differences as time continues to march through this historically intriguing English district.
