BISHOP’S CASTLE is a borough corporate, market town, and parish, having separate jurisdiction, locally in the hundred of Purslow, 161 W, from London, 20 S.W. by S. from Shrewsbury, and 8½ S.E. from Montgomery (North Wales). It is situated partly on the summit, but chiefly on the steep declivity of a hill, in the midst of a fertile country, abounding with pleasing views. The town, which is irregularly built, and the habitations, for the most part, detached, derives its name from a castle, that stood here, belonging to the Bishop of Hereford – but of which the site (now a bowling green belonging to the Castle Inn), and some small portions of the walls, only can be traced. The government of the town, by charter granted in the 15th year of Elizabeth, and confirmed and extended by James I. is vested in a bailiff, recorder, and fifteen capital burgesses, assisted by a town clerk, a serjeant-at-mace and subordinate officers: the bailiff, late bailiff and recorder, are justices of the peace. The corporation hold a court of sessions quarterly; and Bishop’s Castle is included in the twenty-seventh circuit of county court towns, under the acts passed for the recovery of debts not exceeding £50. The town hall, a plain brick edifice, erected by subscription of the burgesses in 1750, has a prison on the basement for criminals, and above it one for debtors. The elective franchise was conferred in the 26th of Elizabeth, from which time it sent two members to parliament, till the Reform Bill of 1832 deprived it of that privilege, but made it a polling station at the election of representatives for South Shropshire.
The parish church of Saint John the Baptist is a very handsome building, erected (with the exception of the tower) in 1863. The living is a vicarage in the gift of the Earl Powis. There are places of worship for Independents, Primitive and Wesleyan Methodists, and there is a good national school. There are some handsome seats within a few miles of Bishop’s Castle – Wallcott, the property of the Earl Powis, is about four miles distant; Linley Hall, the seat of Thomas Frederick More, Esq., is about the same distance, and
