Market Drayton

Market Drayton is a small market town in north Shropshire, England, close to the Welsh Border. It is on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke-on-Trent, and was formerly known as "Drayton in Hales" (c. 1868) and earlier simply as "Drayton" (c. 1695). Market Drayton is on the Shropshire Union Canal and on Regional Cycle Route 75. The A53 road by-passes the town. The counties of Staffordshire and Cheshire, and the Welsh Border are both close by.

Famous quotes containing the words drayton and/or market:

    But you broke into heaven’s immortal store,
    Where virtue, honor, wit, and beauty lay;
    Which taking thence you have escaped away,
    Yet stand as free as ere you did before;
    —Michael Drayton (1563–1631)

    It is a sign of our times, conspicuous to the coarsest observer, that many intelligent and religious persons withdraw themselves from the common labors and competitions of the market and the caucus, and betake themselves to a certain solitary and critical way of living, from which no solid fruit has yet appeared to justify their separation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
