Descriptive gazetteer entries

In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Wyre Forest like this:

Wyre Forest, ry. sta., Worcestershire, on NW. border of co., 3 miles NW. of Bewdley. Wyre Forest forms the southern portion of the Severn Valley coal-field, which stretches from vicinity of Worcester to Newport in Shropshire.

This is the only descriptive gazetter entry we have found, but you may be able to find further references to Wyre Forest by doing a full-text search here.
