Evesham Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Worcestershire...

Tucked away in Britain’s principal fruit growing region, this ancient market town stands on the banks of the River Avon and is overlooked by a 110ft, 16th century bell tower which, together with two churches and an almonry, are all that remain of one of the wealthiest monasteries in Britain. Southeast lies the orchard-filled Vale of Evesham and the unique ‘Blossom Trail’ and ‘Vale Trail’. Just north of the town is the site of the Battle of Evesham in which Simon de Montfort was killed in 1265 by the future Edward 1.
