Midway between Worcester and Tenbury Wells and seven miles south-west of Stourport is the Village of Abberley. Known to the Saxons as Eodaldelega, possibly after Eobald a local Chieftain. Abberley came to the fore in 1405 when the army of Henry IV - on Abberley Hill - faced the Welsh/French army of Owain Glyndwrs (Owen Glendower) camped on Woodbury Hill, for eight days they stared at each other across the valley until, with this supply lines being harried by Henry, Owain withdrew. The oldest part of the village is around the old parish church and the 17th century Manor Arms. Built in the 12th century St.Michael`s was in the squat Norman style with a tower at the western end, re-building in the 14th century put too much weight on the existing walls so the by the middle of the 18th century it was in a dangerous state and a new church, St.Mary`s was built in 1850-52 in the later 13th century style. In 1962 the villagers set about restoring the chancel of the old church and in 2000 a major restoration of the enclosure took place creating a haven of piece and tranquillity. The old Rectory is a pre-Reformation hall-house that may date back to the late 13th century. Across the Cleobury road is an area known as the Common, it is the largest part of the village and here can be found a village shop, the new church and school. A little to the west is the Elms, a Queen Anne mansion designed by Gilbert White in 1710, it contains some ornate plaster ceilings and carved fireplaces, it is now a Hotel. Abberley Hall is an Italianate mansion built around 1846 it was the home of Joseph Jones, a Lancashire cotton magnate, who brought the mansion from the Molliets a Swiss banking family. Joseph was succeeded by his cousin John Jones who added a west wing and the porch, in 1883 he built the high clock tower that so dominates the area, the Hall is now a private school. Abberley Hill forms part of the Abberley & Malvern Geopark and the Worcestershire Way long distance foot path traverses the hill.
