The Mount Exhibition: Opening a window on the Darwins' legacy

This beautiful exhibition tells the story of The Mount and its gardens (Charles Darwin’s boyhood home), through a series of never-before-seen photographs dating from the late Victorian era.

The photographs were recently discovered in an album containing around 50 images, at Shropshire Archives. The exhibition features a short film which shows a glimpse into Darwin’s early life and how his Shrewsbury home would have looked at the time.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
