BRIDGNORTH, THE TWOFOLD TOWN OF THE SEVERN, AND ITS RICHARD BAXTER MEMORIES

BRIDGNORTH, THE TWOFOLD TOWN OF THE SEVERN, AND ITS RICHARD BAXTER MEMORIES

Bridgnorth stands on both banks of the Severn, the High Town, as it is called, occupying the right bank, and the Low Town the very much lower left. The bridge seen in the foreground of the photograph connects the two sections of this picturesquely built Shropshire town, which assuredly escapes the noxious features usually associated with the Black Country. Its church of S. Leonard, though almost entirely rebuilt, is indelibly associated with Richard Baxter, who was curate here in 1640, and the small house he occupied near by still stands.
