Bradshaw’s Guide


This is a considerable town, of about 6,240 inhabitants, situated on both sides of the Severn, the two parts being distinguished by the names of Upper and Lower, and connected by a noble bridge of six arches. It has a considerable carrying trade on the river; in other respects it is of a miscellaneous character. The promenade outside the town should be visited.
