  1. I was born in Scotland, then moved to Worcester in the late 70’s. in st johns area is a road named McIntyre, my surname. I live in st johns opposite the church that was a target for canon’s off perry wood on the other side of the river, it was also a place that royalist troops were held and still has the grooves in the stone used to sharpen pikes. a mile down the road is powick bridge + battle fields, which I grew up around + fished in the team. I can not how ever I search have discovered why McIntyre road was named as such, other nearby streets have relation to warriors or the civil war as in lambert road, nelson road, knight street and buck street. its funny how being brought here to Worcester, I walk over the fields nearly every day where my ancestors may have died or been captured, living by a royalist held position and drink in the pub next to the battle area that has a barn used to hold Scottish prisoners, I also watch the sealed knots re-enactments which are really good + informative, however McIntyre road that leads to the cemetery deludes me of an answer !
