As part of the National Trust's Heritage Open Days ITV News Central has visited an Elizabethan Guildhall used by Shrewsbury drapers.
It's 60 years since the conquest of Mount Everest, it's synonymous with Sir Edmund Hillary, but Midlanders first attempted it.
Royal Mail has announced that it is to stop processing post from its Shrewsbury sorting office.
Today is the 60th anniversary of the first successful ascent of Everest.
A Midlands man joined New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepalese mountaineer Tenzing Norgay when they became the first climbers to be confirmed as having reached the summit of Mount Everest.
Sir Robert Charles Evans, a member of that group, attended Shrewsbury School, as did Sandy Irvine in the 1920s, who died trying to summit Everest in 1924 - his body was never found.
Dr Adam Booth, who also went to Shrewsbury School, climbed Everest this year, reaching the summit on May 12th.
Dr Booth told ITV Central that whilst he was a schoolboy he was aware of the previous climbers that had attended the school before him.

Private Samuel was a soldier in the London Regiment according to his great niece, Alison Corfield.
She says he fought in the Battle of the Somme, which began in July 1916.
"He was killed on September 30 1916. He died of wounds and is buried at St. Pierre cemetery in Amiens. There is a family story that when he joined up he said: 'I'm going now and I don't expect to be back.'"
Alison Corfield says she is delighted by the parish council's decision to correct her great uncle's memorial name.
Mrs. Corfield, from Shrewsbury, says her family had tried to hide the extra "s" by covering it with mud.
She wrote to councillors arguing that a change would be appropriate as the 100th anniversary of the start of hostilities approached.
