These are the Garmin routes we took last year from our homes near Stourbridge to Carlisle. We didnt pass through Shrewsbury but you should be able to find a route from there through quiet roads to a point before Market Drayton.

See Days 7-10 of this post: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=121231
I followed A49 and A6 for much of this route without any problems. Took a few detours to use quiter roads that didn’t add too many miles.
