Three miles down river - as the swan flies - west of Evesham, is the village of Fladbury nestling in a loop of the River Avon. Fladbury is as old as Evesham, there was a Saxon monastery here for in 691 King Ethelred granted the manor of Fladbury to the Bishop of Worcester (it was then known as Fledanburg roughly meaning "protected town of the flood lands" ); nothing now remains of the Saxon buildings. the river has been the life blood of the village but it wasn`t until 1635 that William Sandys, then owner of Fladbury Mill, set about clearing the river which up until that time was shallow in places and overgrown with sedges. The Mill can still be seen, near the mill is the C17th Anchor Inn other fine buildings to be seen are; the Chequers Inn, parts of which date to the C14th; the Rectory of 1710 with C19th alterations; the White House, early C19th and Craycombe House built in 1791 for George Perrott of the East India Company by George Byfield. The parish church of St.John still retains it`s C12th tower but was largely re-built in the 14th century, the chancel was rebuilt in 1865. Inside there monuments to Sir John Throckmorton who died in 1445 and his wife Alianora, Sir John was one of the foremost men of his age, having a long career as a solider he was adviser to the Earl of Warwick and also the under-treasurer of England. A bridge built to commemorate the 1887 Jubilee of Queen Victoria gives direct access to Cropthorpe, prior to this there was a ferry service. The village retains many of its fine buildings and narrow alleyways, and is a developing village with the river again as an influence, this time for leisure with private boats, pleasure boats using the lock, canoeing and course fishing.
