Poorly written[edit]

This article needs a lot of work. Especially with sentences like this: "Later you will read about Dr. Brookes bringing in the railway to Much Wenlock to help the economic prosperity of the town"

Urrrrgh! It's verbosity is painful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.171.19.146 (talk) 14:34, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

As the person who first started the article in 2008, I tend to agree with you. Obviously, it has been through many other editors' hands since then, and I haven't kept up with all the changes. The particular example you give is one of a raft of changes introduced by an unregistered editor in February 2009, in this edit, which (from the style) may well be a copyright violation anyway. When I have more time I'll check through the article and copy edit it - otherwise, feel free to do it yourself (keeping all the bits that I wrote, obviously... ;-) ) Ghmyrtle (talk) 14:48, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
