TV Shrewsbury School Encient Library
The ancient library of Shrewsbury School was founded in 1606 by the head master John Meighen in part fulfilment of the development plan laid down in Thomas Ashton's Ordinances of 1578. It was housed in a purpose -designed building built in 1595 and in a room fitted out with presses and chained like a contemporary Oxford or Cambridge college library. Above it was a walking gallery intended for mathematical and astronomical instruments.
