Tom Owen joined the LNWR and GWR joint railway in December 1884 and acquired a secure career. When Tom was promoted to assistant superintendent in 1907, the Owens moved back to Shrewsbury. Wilfred became interested in the area’s Roman heritage, which led him to the Roman remains at Uriconium. In a poem about Uriconium, he admires the arts and crafts of the violent past of the city. Yet Owen also called Shrewsbury vile and dull, and portrayed the town as boring and lifeless in his poem “Roundel.”
