"The chief city, containing 5 parish churches, besides its ancient and magnificent cathedral. It is well built, and its four principal streets are greatly admired for the regularity of their junction in the centre of the town; besides which there are several smaller ones, all well paved. Here is a good stone bridge over the Severn, the lowest down that river, with a quay, wharf, and custom-house. The manufacture of pins, &c., is not so flourishing. It is seated on the east side of the Severn, where, by its two streams, it forms the Isle of Alney. It is 106 miles from London. Market, Wednesday. Fairs on April 5, July 5, September 28, and November 28, the latter chiefly for fat hogs. Population, 14,152." (From Barclay's Complete and Universal English Dictionary, 1842.)
