Part of the Through Time Series


Telford Through Time by Allan Frost

The designated 'new town' of Telford in Shropshire received its name in 1968; in fact, it is not a new town but rather a conurbation of townships and villages whose story goes back 3,000 years. In recent years, the area governed by Telford & Wrekin Council has been extended to include a wider area - and history - than originally conceived. The Telford landscape is an ever-changing canvas in which so much has disappeared forever under the banner of progress. New roads, housing estates, shopping malls, business parks and enterprise zones have restructured the local economy and affected ways of life. Using a selection of illustrations from different periods, the reader is encouraged to examine these differences as time continues to march through this historically intriguing English district.

About the Author

Allan Frost was born in Wellington, Shropshire. He first became interested in death and disaster after spotting a family gravestone recording the death of four of his great-great-grandfather's children in an explosion in 1839. Allan has 30 years' writing and publishing experience, and has written many local history books, including Telford 1968, The Way We Lived Then, The Wrekin Hill and Breweries and Bottlers of Wellington. He is also chairman of the Wellington History Group and occasional historical advisor to the Telford & Wrekin Council.
