SO7875 : Welch Gate (lower end)

taken 10 years ago, near to Bewdley, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Welch Gate (lower end)
Welch Gate (lower end)
Welch Gate is a very old and winding road which climbs steeply from Bewdley's town centre to the point where it joins the road known as Winbrook. Welch Gate gets its name from the old tollgate which once stood on the route from Wales. This view is looking towards the town centre. The building on the left has what appears to be a bricked in window, which may have been done possibly in the 18th century when many windows were removed to avoid the "window tax" introduced in 1696 and not removed until early Victorian times.
