Few of us are aware of the implications, symbolism and history of the names we use every day, or indeed of the continuous process of naming and re-naming that goes on around us. This comprehensive dictionary of Worcestershire place-names, their origins and meaning, includes districts, towns, villages and hamlets, together with notable buildings, as well as countryside features - such as fields, rivers, streams, hills and woods. A full description of how each name originated is given, thereby bringing to life the rich tapestry of history that has shaped Worcestershire over centuries.
