Response to Review of Wem & Myddle

The authors have received the review and appreciate Professor Edwards’ observations on various aspects of the late David Hey’s account of Myddle during the Tudor and Stuart period and the more recently published Victoria County History Short on Wem. The works are complementary, exploring a rural parish and neighbouring town in North Shropshire, and they similarly rely on antiquarians, whilst representing fundamentally different approaches to local history. We are delighted to have been able to provide ‘a comprehensive and readable account of the town’.
