Whitchurch is Shropshire's only town to be continually inhabited on the same site since being built in Roman times. The current displays, exhibits, and activities in the Heritage Centre reflect the town's historic roots. Many of the exhibits are geared towards children and are very much hands-on with a Roman Archaeology sand pit where coins and a skull can be uncovered. There are three brass Caldecott rubbing plaques from which budding artists can create their own masterpieces to take home. There is also a giant puzzle depicting a typical nursery rhyme theme created from an illustration by the famous Victorian Illustrator Randolph Caldecott. The Caldecott Gallery houses a fine collection of artwork, books, photographs & memorabilia relating to the composer Edward German and artist Randolph Caldecott.
