The Farrs, Dorrington

Shrewsbury Homes is currently developing new family homes in the picturesque setting of Dorrington. The area is often described as the gateway to the Shropshire Hills. The first stage is focusing on ten properties, both three-bedroom and four-bedroom.


The Farrs is a high quality development of contemporary three and four-bedroomed properties being offered by Shrewsbury Homes. Our leading, independent property development company has decades of house-building experience in Shropshire, specialising in the off-plan construction of family homes.

Shropshire is an area of truly outstanding natural beauty. Glorious English countryside, rolling hills, valleys, woodlands, agricultural and pasture land; a rural county where living is less stressful and yet has plenty going on.

Thriving local communities, good schools, a better quality of life, excellent local facilities and easy access to the rest of the country.


Located midway between Shrewsbury and Church Stretton, the village of Dorrington could be described as the gateway to the South Shropshire Hills AONB. A village hall, primary school, church, 18th Century Coaching Inn, a popular restaurant, independent butchers and a Post Office all help to make this a thriving local community.

Within easy reach is Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire – a medieval market town (birthplace of Charles Darwin) steeped in history and lying adjacent to the River Severn. Modern shopping facilities complement the variety of interesting, independent traders on its picturesque cobbled alleys and squares. Black and white buildings, a sandstone Castle, an Abbey and many other historical buildings are reminders of a colourful past.

And Shrewsbury is still colourful; renowned for its floral displays, the annual Flower Show is one of the country’s largest horticultural attractions. Quality food and entertainment venues further enhance the enviable lifestyle enjoyed by Shrewsbury’s residents.


William Farr

William Farr (30 November 1807–14 April 1883) was born in Shropshire and lived in Dorrington where his impoverished family were provided with a safe haven by a local squire, Joseph Pryce. Pryce’s legacy allowed Farr to study medicine in France and Switzerland. Returning to England and following further studies, he started a medical practice in Fitzroy Square, London.

Farr became involved in medical journalism and statistics and is considered to be one of the founders of medical statistics.
