"WORTHEN, a parish partly in the hundred of Cawrse, county Montgomery, but chiefly in the hundreds of Chirbury and Ford, county Salop, 12 miles S.W. of Shrewsbury, 11 from Welshpool, and 9 from Montgomery.

The parish comprises the chapelries of Trelystan and Hope, the quarters of Bing Weston, Bromblow, Upper Heath, and Worthin, and 15 other townships.

The village, which was formerly a market town, under charter of Henry III. is situated on the road from Shrewsbury to Montgomery near the river Rea and the Stipperstones, a ridge of loose stones extending several miles towards Shrewsbury, and said to be the ancient boundary between England and Wales."
