GLOUCESTER

AND

NEIGHBOURHOOD.

This ancient city, the capital of the county, forming with Bristol the see of a bishop, an inland port and county in itself, is locally situate in the hundred of Dudstone and King's Barton, in 51° 54' 30" north latitude and 2° 15' west longitude, distant 103 miles W.N.W. of London via Cheltenham, Oxford, High Wycombe, Uxbridge, &c.; 114 by the Great Western Railway; 54 S.S.W. of Birmingham, 36 N.N.E. of Bristol, 25 S. of Worcester, 26 E.N.E. of Monmouth, 32 S.E. of Hereford, 39 N.N.E. of Bath, 7 N. of Stroud, 17 N.W. of Cirencester, 9 S.W.W. of Cheltenham; and contained by the census of 1841, 14,152 inhabitants, but since that period the population has considerably increased.

Gloucester is delightfully situate in the vale bearing its name, upon a gentle eminence rising from the Severn, and contiguous to the Isle of Alney, which is formed by the division of that river into two channels; the scenery surrounding is unrivalled in richness and beauty, consisting of hill and dale, wood and water; on the west are May Hill and the highlands of the Forest of Dean, stretching down to Chepstow; to the south is Stinchcomb Hill, the summit of which cominands a grand and imposing view of the estuary of the Severn. On the east are the Cotswold Hills, so long and so far famed for the fine sheep which are fattened on that verdant pasturage; whilst the view on the north is terminated by the noble range of Malvern Hills.

The various approaches to the City are highly picturesque, from Highnam on the Ross and Newnham road; from the Bristol road; from Wooldridge on the Worcester road, aud more striking than all from Birdlip on the Cirencester road; where after emerging from between stone walls and square intersections of land, it opens into the luxuriant vale of Gloucester, presenting varied and gratifying prospects seldom to be met with, wbilst at a distance the pinnacled tower of Gloucester's stately Cathedral rears its timehonoured head high in air, looking proudly and majestically upon the scenes below, thus forming a superb and conspicuous object in the splendid scenery of which it may be regarded as the centre.

The entrance to the city from Ross, and the Forest of Dean, is by Over and Westgate bridges, crossing the Severn and Over's Causeway; which latter runs through the rich pastures of the Isle of Alney. These bridges consist each of a single arch. Over bridge was constructed from a design of Mr. Telford, and is one of the widest span of any stone arch in the kingdom ; no less than eighteen thousand tons of stone are embodied in this magnificent structure. On the S.W. side we enter by the Bristol road, where many handsome buildings have been erected, which from their contiguity to the Spa form very desirable residences. The main entrance from the north of England is by Worcester street, an entire new street projected and accomplished by John Phillpotts, Esq. The north-eastern entrance, or London and Cheltenham road, is adorned on either side with a number of modern erections; and branching out of the south side, is Wellington parade, a range of uniform houses having Bath stone fronts; and deflecting from the north side are Alvin and Oxford streets.

Eastgate, Westgate, Northgate, and Southgate are the principal streets, respectively named from the old gates of the city, none of which are now standing; the old buildings in these streets have been much modernized, and many handsome new ones erected; among these may be mentioned a Branch of the Bank of England (opened in 1826), the County of Gloucester Bank, and the Gloucestershire Banking Company's Bank. The National Provincial Bank in Westgate street, formerly occupied by the late well-known and eccentric James Wood, the opulent Banker, has lately been re-fronted with stone in the Gothic style, and its interior undergone great improvements.
