The Shrewsbury Drapers Company by Nigel Hinton is due to be published shortly by YouCaxton. It focuses both on the history of the Drapers Company and on the long slog undertaken by the Drapers to build new almshouses for the benefit of the town. Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester, Vice Patron of the Almshouse Association, will officially open Drapers’ Place, Horsefair, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury today.
