Nearwell Hostel - a Memory of Shrewsbury.

From 1950 to 1952 I attended Shrewsbury College as a Agriculture Engineering student, and was boarded at Nearwell Hostel sited on the left of the picture (the tall trees on the left were part of the garden). I believe it has since been replaced by the Library and ambulance Station? At the time I was there the hostel was run by one of the College teachers - a Mr Spurr and his wife.
