interest attaching to the history of this ancient city is
connected with its cathedral, which, according to
Fuller, was completed during Bishop Heyworth’s epis-
copate (1420-1447). The building is described as being
excellently proportioned, but as a whole more attrac-
tive from its picturesque appearance rather than its
architectural beauty. A charter of incorporation was
granted to the city by Edward VI. Samuel Johnson
(1709-1784), the great lexicographer and moralist, was
born here, and was educated at the grammar school,
which also had the honour of having upon its roll the
names of Addison, Ashmole, and Garrick. The purity
of the water makes brewing a successful industry.
Carriage and harness work are largely carried on. In
connection with an extension of the London and North-
Western By. a new station was built here in 1884.
