Market Drayton is a wonderfully compact town lying almost completely between the River Tern (a subsidiary of the Severn) and the A53 bypass to the north. Within those boundaries is a core of attractive historic buildings, a wide variety of retailing mainly in the centre, some light industry, and a good selection of housing stock. The Shropshire Union canal runs through it from north to south. It is situated in a predominantly rural area in the north east of Shropshire on the border with Staffordshire; a few miles to the north is Cheshire. This is a location which has given rise to the names of the towns main shopping streets: Shropshire Street, Cheshire Street and Stafford Street. It has a Town Council and comes under the District Council of North Shropshire and the County Council of Shropshire. The population is around 11,000.
It is easy to see why Draytons first settlers chose to raise their church on this red sandstone precipice above the River Tern around the year 950AD. It could be easily defended and had access to water and arable land all around. The dray element of the towns name is related to the word drag and suggests that it was known as a place where either boats had to be dragged over an obstruction or carts dragged uphill. Local historian Peter Brown inclines towards the second interpretation. Whatever the origins of the name, we assume these first settlers were Saxons because it is a Saxon name; a Roman road ran along the route of the A41 between Stoke Heath and Tern Hill but no evidence has come to light of any Roman or British (Celtic) occupation at Drayton itself.
Great Drayton and Little Drayton (the western portion of the present-day town) are listed as separate manors, or estates, in the Domesday book of 1086, William the Conquerors survey of the lands he had conquered. The manor of Great Drayton had been awarded by William to the Abbey of St Evroul in France who was leasing it to William Pantulph of Wem at the time of Domesday. St Marys Church at Great Drayton commanded a parish far in excess of the manor in which it stood, taking in not only Little Drayton but a large area straddling the Shropshire-Staffordshire border. Despite its name, Great Drayton is thought to have contained only a handful of cottages, so a geographically large parish would have been necessary to maintain its church living. The parish lay in a still wider area called Hales which has led to Market Drayton sometimes being called Drayton-in-Hales.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
