15th September 2023
Evesham grew up within a bend of the River Avon around its famous abbey, one of the largest in the country, and although the abbey was destroyed in the sixteenth century, the town remained one of the most important settlements in Worcestershire. It was also the site of the battle in 1265 in which the rebel Simon de Montfort was killed by the royal army. Today it is renowned as a centre for market gardening.
A–Z of Evesham reveals the history behind Evesham, its streets and buildings, businesses and the people connected with the town. Alongside the famous historic associations are unusual characters, tucked-away places and unique events that are less well-known. Fully illustrated, this book will appeal to all those with an interest in this historic Worcestershire town.
