Shifnal is a market town and civil parish in Shropshire, England, about 3mi east of Telford. It has a railway station on the Shrewsbury-Wolverhampton Line and is near to the M54 motorway. At the 2001 census, it had a population of 6,391.HistoryEarly medieval timeThe town, also once known as "Idsall", most probably began as an Anglian settlement, established by the end of the 7th century.Shifnal is thought to be the place named "Scuffanhalch", in a 9th-century charter, as a possession of the monastery at Medeshamstede . Though this seems a dubious claim, and the ancient charter is in fact a 12th-century forgery, the full picture is more complex. Sir Frank Stenton considered that "Scuffanhalch", along with "Costesford" and "Stretford", formed part of a list of places which had once been connected with Medeshamstede; and the charter purports to have been issued by King Æthelred of Mercia, during much of whose reign the bishop of Mercia was Sexwulf, founder and first abbot of Medeshamstede.
