'Stone age' burial mound could be built in Shropshire

A burial mound, similar to those built to house the dead in ancient times, could be built in Shropshire.

It is designed to contain a number of alcoves which will be available for people to store the ashes of loved ones.

Plans have been drawn up by a company specialising in these mounds, which wants to build it at Soulton Hall, near Wem.

Similar barrows have already been built in Wiltshire and Cambridgeshire and another is planned for Herefordshire.
