This stage involves quite a long walk. Make your way back across English Bridge to the start of Wyle Cop, but instead of climbing the hill back towards the town centre, bear left into Beeches Lane at the first set of traffic lights. Continue straight onto Town Walls until you reach St Chad's Terrace.

St Chad's Church
You will see St Chad's Church on your right and the entrance to the Quarry Park on your left. This unusual "round" church was built in the the 19th century.

In the grounds you can visit the the "fake" grave of Ebeneezer Scrooge - left from the making of the movie "The Christmas Carol"

The Quarry Park
Cross the road and take some time to stroll around the Quarry. This 29 acre riverside park is the home of the world famous Shrewsbury Flower Show, held in August each year.

Centrepiece to the park is "The Dingle", a former stone quarry, now a lovingly landscaped sunken garden.

Percy Thrower was in charge of the town's parks before he became famous and was partially responsible for the development of the Dingle.
