Another local author found. The vales of Wever, a loco-descriptive poem (1797) by John Gisborne. Very much in the tradition of Erasmus Darwin, it describes and footnotes walks around Wootton, Norbury, and the Weaver Hills, local moors, and other places. He seems to have spent a year there and wrote this long poem in the ‘long-s’ style as a thank-you for his host. After his death his daughter published a short account of his life with diary extracts, of which there’s a poor scan at Archive.org.
