1617 Shrewsbury.  Some familiar old names and some I’ve not heard of. Pride Hill is written High Paument on here (High Pavement). Butcher Row was The Shambles, Claremont Street used to be Dog Lane, on here it’s Hound Street. Hills Lane was Knocken Street, Mardol is Mard Wall. There’s a Shoemakers Row, Beche Lane, Meryvace and Criples Lane. The Old St Chads had a college nearby (hence College Hill), it also had Almhouses. A longer bridge to the Abbey, you can see why it still floods up there.
