Image: Bridgnorth, Shropshire. A second view of the town.
Bridgnorth was formerly celebrated as a clothing town; but its chief manufactory now is of stockings. It also has a considerable trade in leather, iron tools, etc. The air of Bridgnorth, and of the surrounding country, is remarkably salubrious. The town is well supplied with water, partly, by means of pipes from a copious spring half a mile off, and partly by an engine, which throws water from the Severn to the top of Castle Hill.
