Description

This dictionary of Shropshire place-names examines their origins and meanings. It includes not only towns, villages and hamlets, but also rivers, streams, Hills, fields and woods, as well as streets, buildings and public houses. A comprehensive description of the origin and evolution of each name is given, which brings to life the history of the place in a new and remarkably revealing way. Few are aware of the background of the names that are part of our everyday language, and Anthony Poulton-Smith brings this aspect of Shropshire's rich history to life.show more
