"HOPTON-WAFERS, a parish in the Cleobury division of the hundred of Stottesdon, county Salop, 2 miles W. of Cleobury Mortimer, its post town, 5 N.E. of Tenbury, and 9 E. of Ludlow. It is a small village situated in a valley at the foot of Cleo Hill, on the Ludlow and Cleobury Mortimer turnpike road. There is a station at Hopton Heath, on the Knighton branch of the Shrewsbury and Hereford railway.

 

The castle, which was of great strength, was garrisoned for the king in 1643 against the parliament. The tithes have been commuted for a rent-charge of £174. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Hereford, value £248. The church, which was rebuilt in 1827, is a freestone edifice dedicated to St. Michael. It has a square pinnacled tower, containing a clock and three bells. The interior of the church contains a stained-glass window, recently presented by Mrs. Botfield. Here is a free school for a limited number of children of both sexes, entirely supported by Mrs. Botfield, the lady of the manor and chief landowner. There is a place of worship for Primitive Methodists."

Paper Making

 

With the rise in literacy, paper-making centres sprang up in the 18th century, wherever there was plentiful supply of water. Remnants of the trade can still be seen in place names such as Paper Mill Bridge (Lee Brockhurst) and Paper Mill Cottage (Cound).

 

Many of the mills were sited wherever the water ran fast and regularly, which was in the hilly areas such as Cleobury Mortimer, Cressage, Shifnal, Alverley and Oswestry.

 

In other areas the diversion or damming of a placid stream created the necessary flow, as in the idyllic scene at Longnor mill alongside.
