The Quarry is a 29 acre area of parkland encircled by the majestic loop of the river Severn that encircles Shrewsbury Old Town. A centrepiece to the park is The Dingle, a former stone quarry, but now a landscaped sunken garden with alpine borders, brilliant bedding plants, shrubbery and charming water features. This is a perfect spot for walks, picnics, fishing and relaxation and just a few steps from the wonderful narrow streets of the Old Town itself.
