Whitchurch is not only one of Shropshire's busiest and most beautiful market towns, but also one of the most history-packed towns in the Midlands. It's also the oldest continually inhabited town in Shropshire. The name Whitchurch comes from 'White Church'. The original Norman Church was built from white stone (thought to be local chalk). St Alkmunds, the featured church, was built on the same spot in 1712, using sandstone.
