Tenbury Lewis Worcestershire Directory 1820

Tenbury, a market town, 22 miles from Worcester, 9 from Leominster, and 134 from London. It is situated on the bank of the river Team [sic] which divides it from Salop. According to the last census in 1811, it contained 185 houses and 905 inhabitants, exclusive of the Hamlet called the Foreign, containing 44 houses and 233 inhabitants. On the north side of the town is a neat stone Bridge consisting of six arches over the river Team, which divides the counties of Worcester and Salop. The river here is very subject to flood, as on the south side of the town a small brook called Kyre empties itself into the Team, and is often blocked up by it. The great flood, November 17th, 1770, threw down the south and middle aisles of the church, by which means the windows, organ, &c. were broken, and the monuments much injured. Here are annual horse races, respectably attended. The market is on Tuesday, and its fairs are 25th of April, 18th of July, and 26th of September.
