The Town Walls Tower is the very last remaining medieval watchtower surviving on what were once the medieval fortified, defensive walls of Shrewsbury. The tower dates from the 14th century, a time when the town was subject to attacks from the Welsh and like Shrewsbury Castle the tower was a means of observing the land around the town and the River Severn.
