Medieval McDonald's in Shrewsbury set to close

A McDonald's based inside a medieval building in Shrewsbury is set to close.

With parts of the structure dating back to the 12th Century it is thought to be the oldest in the world to house one of the chain's restaurants.

The outlet on Pride Hill opened 34 years ago and will shut when the lease expires.

A spokeswoman for McDonald's said the building "wasn't suitable to meet their future plans".
