North Shropshire (or Shropshire North) is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. From its first creation in 1832 to the abolition of the first creation in 1885 it elected two Knights of the Shire. In 1885 it was - together with the constituency of South Shropshire - divided between four constituencies (Ludlow, Newport, Oswestry and Wellington).
In 1983 it was revived. It now elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.
No boundary changes occurred to this constituency with the latest review of boundaries in England, despite the large population (estimated at 100,400 for mid-2007).
