So where is Longden?

Lyth Hill
The Parish of Longden lies South-West of the town of Shrewsbury, straddling the Longden Road, from Hook-a-Gate to Longden Common. It is a largely rural parish, with little industry, though parts of the parish bear the well-hidden scars of mining, as recently as 1921.

Parish Council

The Parish Council is currently experiencing problems with this current website and is in the process of setting up a new one. It is expected that this will be completed in the next month or so.

Parish Footpaths

Longden, as a rural Parish, is well provided with footpaths suitable for exploring the parish. Many are also brideways, and support horses and other users. Part of The Shropshire Way runs through the eastern edge of the parish.
