Some history of Droitwich
More information on Droitwich to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Droitwich 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 Droitwich. There is information on Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"About nine o'clock on Friday evening last, as Oswald Crowther, shoemaker, living at The Vines, Droitwich, was passing a wall on his
way home, nearly twenty yards of it fell with tremendous crash, together with a large quantity of earth, completely smothering him. The wall was erected for the purpose
of keeping the embankment of a portion of the branch railway to Stoke out of the public road, and was some eight or nine feet high, backed to the top with earth. Nearly
the whole of the wall fell in a solid mass on the footway, but most singularly fortunate Crowther was very little injured."
