Skirmage  Shropshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Skirmage like this:

SKIRMAGE, an extra-parochial tract in Ludlow district, Salop; 7½ miles N of Ludlow. Pop., 4. House, 1.

The location is that of "(The) Skirmidge", marked on the OS 1st Series map and also on the modern OS 1:25,000 map. The identification with "Skirmage" is tentative.
