The History of Bewdley. Richard Perrins
Did the King of England really marry his queen within the town? Did a charming lady preserve an ancient house single handed launching the appreciation of the beauty of the place in its historic buildings. Did the folk of the riverside live with hooks on the walls of their homes with which they lifted their furniture out of reach of the swirling Severn? What of the tropical seas, to discover by the evidence left at Habberley with its ancient path and camp? While at Ruskin’s house in the Lake District I learnt of his connections with Bewdley, what was his mark on this place? What crossings existed before the majestic bridge built by Thomas Telford? Bewdley intertwines itself with the history of Worcestershire and yet reaches out towards the Marches because of its position on the boundary line of the Severn. This will be a talk to feed your soul and root yourself again in this marvellous county.
