This wiki cheese category page contains detailed information and photographs of cheeses produced in the English county of Shropshire.
Shropshire is a county in the West Midlands region of England. It borders Wales to the west. It is one of England's most rural and sparsely populated counties. The county is centred around six main towns starting with the county town of Shrewsbury, which is culturally and historically important,although Telford, which was constructed around a number of older towns, most notably Wellington, Dawley and Madeley, is today the most populous. The Ironbridge Gorge area is advertised as the 'Birthplace of Industry', and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, covering Ironbridge, Coalbrookdale and a part of Madeley.
The Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty covers about a quarter of the county, mainly in the south. The Wrekin is one of the most famous natural landmarks in the county, though the highest hills are the Clee Hills, Stiperstones and the Long Mynd. Wenlock Edge is another significant geographical and geological landmark,and the River Severn, Great Britain's longest river, runs through the county, exiting into Worcestershire via the Severn Valley. Shropshire is England's largest inland county.
