LOCATION Market Drayton is a popular North Shropshire market town on the Staffordshire/Cheshire borders. It is on the River Tern, between Shrewsbury and Stoke on Trent and was formerly known as Drayton in Hales and is listed in the Domesday Book. In 1245 King Henry III granted a charter for the weekly Wednesday market, giving the town its current title. The market is still held every Wednesday. The Shropshire Union Canal runs through the town and Market Drayton offers a wide variety of amenities such as schools, specialist and high street shops, supermarkets and health and leisure facilities. The larger centres of Newcastle under Lyme, The Potteries, Crewe, Stafford, Telford and Shrewsbury are between approximately 15 to 26 miles away.
