In 1981 the population of the town was 57,731 and in 1991 the population of the town was 64,219. Shrewsbury is Shropshire's second largest town, after Telford.
It was in the late Middle Ages (14th and 15th centuries) when the town was at its height of commercial importance.

The Shrewsbury Drapers Company dominated the trade in Welsh wool for many years.
