Part 7 of the Place-Names of Shropshire and Journal 48 published


Part 7 of The Place-Names of Shropshire, by John Baker with Sarah Beach, has recently been published.   This is the first of the Survey volumes for Shropshire to be published as an outcome of the Place-Names of Shropshire project, a four-year collaborative venture between the Institute for Name-Studies and the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) to complete the Shropshire Survey begun by Margaret Gelling. Full members of the English Place-Name Society (EPNS) receive this volume for free, and non-members can purchase it directly from the Society. 

Volume 49 of the Journal of the English Place-Name Society has also recently been published. EPNS members receive the Journal free of charge, and individual volumes can be purchased directly from the Society.  Contents of this and previous volumes can be viewed on the Journal web pages.
