Some history of Bewdley
More information on Bewdley to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Bewdley from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Bewdley. There is information on Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"On Monday, at the Borough Bench, before Messrs. J. Nicholls, T. Baugh, Marcey, and Price, John Churchitt of Stourport, Edward Colley and
Emma Colley, of Sandy Bank, Bewdley, were charged with being drunk on Bewdley Bridge, on Saturday evening week. Head Constable Fisher and P.O. Humpherson were in Load
Street shortly before midnight, when they heard a loud noise in the direction of Severn-side. They proceeded in the direction of the sound and then found that the
guilty persons were on the other side of the Severn in Wribbenhall. It was evident that the woman from her screams was being hurt, and the officers having waited near
the bridge some time, the three persons crossed the bridge and entered the borough, where they were met by Mr. and his colleagues. Churchitt stated that the woman was
his sister, and the defendant Colley was assaulting her which led him to interfere. The Bench fined the man Colley 10s. and costs, or one month, his wife 2s. 6d. and
costs, or seven days, and Churchitt 5s. and costs, or 14 days' hard labour."
