WORCESTER, a city, a county of itself, having exclusive jurisdiction, and the head of a union, locally in the county of Worcester, of which it is the capital, Worcester and W. divisions of the county, 111 miles (N. W. by W.) from London. The city comprises the '''parishes''' of St. Alban, All Saints, St. Andrew, '''St. Clement''', St. Helen, St. Martin, St. Nicholas, St. Peter, and St. Swithin. The '''parish of St. Clement''' living is a discharged rectory. The old church, a small structure of stone, stood on the eastern bank of the Severn, although the principal part of the parish is on the western side; being much decayed, and liable to be flooded, a new edifice on an enlarged scale was built, which was opened in 1823. It is situated on the upper road to Henwick. There are places of worship for'''Baptists, the Society of Friends, the Countess of Huntingdon's Connexion, Independents, Wesleyans, and Roman Catholics'''.<ref>Lewis, Samuel A., [http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=51430#s2 ''A Topographical Dictionary of England (1848)''], pp. 673-687.
