Latest reviews | Events in Pershore | 10 Places to Stay

In the heart of the Vale of Evesham some 10 miles south east of Worcester and 6 miles west of Evesham lies the small market town of Pershore. Sitting on the banks of the River Avon Pershore is renown for its Georgian architecture so much so the the Council of British Archaeology designated it as a town of architectural importance. But it is the Abbey that commands attention; it was founded in 689 by the King Oswald and in 972 King Edgar granted a charter which granted lands to the Abbey. The majority of the architecture is 13th century but there has seen much rebuilding over the centuries leaving the Abbey smaller than it once was. Pershore Bridge has also had a chequered past, disputes over its upkeep in the 12th and 13th centuries over its upkeep and partial the destruction during the Civil War in 1644 has left the present structure a mix of various dates. Agriculture is the mainstay of the local economy especially in hard stone fruit, and in the spring the area around the town is ablaze with white and pink blossom of plum, damson, apple and pear trees, these can be enjoyed on the well sign-posted "Blossom Trail". In summer, at nearby Wick, fields of Delphiniums dazzle the eye. Pershore is also home to the world famous Agricultural Collage which has built an International reputation for its courses and for the show gardens that it exhibits at RHS shows such as Malvern and Chelsea. August Bank Holiday is Plum Day in Pershore with many well known and not so well known Plums available to taste and buy including the Pershore Yellow Egg, which was found in the nearby Tiddesley Woods in 1827 by local man George Crooke. With boating and fishing on the Avon miles of pathways and walks up Bredon Hill to enjoy Pershore is the beating heart of the Vale of Evesham.
