With a layout that remains largely unaltered from medieval times, Shrewsbury is a stunning market town with many timber-clad buildings of the 15th and 16th centuries. The town is home to a magnificent castle constructed from red sandstone, and has historically been a centre for the wool and brewing industries. What's more, Shrewsbury has a strong horticultural background, with the town's annual flower show constituting one of England's largest horticultural events.
The historic town is the birthplace of the evolutionist Charles Darwin and, in his honour, a striking sculpture - 'The Quantum Leap' - was constructed alongside the River Severn in 2009. The twisted construction was designed by architectural firm Pearce & Lal, and is perceived to take inspiration from Darwinian themes of dinosaur skeletons, DNA or back bones.
Our drivers are frequent visitors to Shrewsbury, and we find full stave prime oak worktops to be a popular order in the area. We attribute this worktop preference to the traditional charm of oak combined with the stunning appearance of large swathes of solid wood with minimal natural imperfections. The golden hues of oak are a popular choice for many households, comprised of sturdy and hard-wearing wood that gives a homely impression to both modern and traditional interiors.
To be sure of the consistently high standard of timber that we sell, customers in Shrewsbury may be interested in our solid wood sample service. This allows you to 'try before you buy' and have confidence in your purchase - we are certain you will not be disappointed! Samples cost just £5 each, and can be discounted against your worktop order on a one-for-one basis.
