Bishop's Castle is a small market town in south Shropshire, built on a south-facing hill.
Its historic buildings include the unusual House on Crutches, which is supported by wooden posts over a cobbled alley.
This timber framed building dates back to Elizabethan times and houses an extensive social history collection.
Another building of note is the Porch House, dating from around 1564, which also features in this photo gallery.
The Porch House is described by English Heritage as 'one of the most important and sumptuous houses in the town'.
Bishop's Castle has two breweries, and the number of pubs is a reminder that this was once a drovers' town.
