    Shropshire is landlocked and with an area of 3,487 square kilometres (1,346 sq mi) is England's largest inland county.


    The county's population and economy is centered on five towns: the county town of Shrewsbury, which is culturally and historically important and is located in the center of the county; Telford, a new town in the east which was constructed around a number of older towns, most notably WellingtonDawley and Madeley, which is today the most populous; and Oswestry in the north-west,Bridgnorth just to the south of Telford, and Ludlow in the south. The county has many market towns, including Whitchurch in the north, Newport north-east of Telford and Market Drayton in the north-east of the county.

    Strange that they named a WWII heavy cruiser after a land locked county.I knew a guy that served on the Shropshire in WWII after it was transferred to the RAN from the RN as a replacement for the Canberra that was sunk.
