The beautiful county of Shropshire in the West Midlands is well-situated for business trips to most parts of the country, yet remains one of England's most rural and sparsely populated counties. There are many new apartments and new houses for sale in the large town of Telford and the county town of Shrewsbury, but there are also new homes available in Shropshire's smaller towns and villages.
