Mardol, looking south
Mardol, looking south
On the right in the image is The Shrewsbury Hotel and next to it the entrance to Carnarvon Lane, one of the town's 'shuts' or passages. The name, which has remained unchanged, was possibly connected with Welsh traders (the Welsh Bridge is close by although no longer directly at the foot of Mardol); more likely it was called after a C15 resident named Ludovick Carnarvon.
Mardol was formerly spelt Mardefole or Mardeval, possibly meaning Devil's Boundary - whether this had to do with the rascally Welsh or with the area's mediaeval sex workers is anybody's guess.
