Condover Hall, which features in this collection of pictures, is a Grade I listed Elizabethan sandstone building. It has been described as the grandest manor house in Shropshire.
The village was once home to Richard Tarlton, jester to Elizabeth I and said to have been the inspiration for the character of Yorick in Shakespeare's Hamlet.
