Evesham Things to Do


    What a delightful looking Pub this was!Black and White, lot's of flower basket's, it looked a bit hickeldty, pickelty, I loved it!It was an historical coaching inn so it was allowed to look that way!Ye Olde Red Horse in spring and summer, is home to award winning floral displays, and in Winter cuddle up with a Wine infront of a roaring log fire....


    St Lawrence's Church, Evesham, is an Anglican church no longer in use and is now on the English Heritage list. Both Churches, St Lawrence's Church and All Saints were built by the Benedictine monks of Evesham Abbey in the 12th century. The present church dates from 1470, replacing the earlier church.Initially St Lawrence's was a richer church than...


    All Saint's Church is a lovely Anglican Chuch in Evesham.The Church was built by the Benedictine monks of Evesham Abbey in the 12th century, to serve the people of Evesham and is still in use today.All Saints is now the town's parish church, as St Lawrence's was declared redundant in 1978. The Church Yard, is shared by the two churches, rather...


    The Almonry was another delightful building in Evesham. This building, dated back to the 14th century. Following the closure of the Abbey by Henry VIII, the Almonry became the personal home of the last Abbot, Philip Ballard, whilst the rest of the Abbey buildings were sold to Sir Philip Hoby who arranged for the quarrying of the stone. What a...


    The most perfect architectural remain's of the Norman Abbot's is Abbot Reginald's Gateway. It's a Norman arch leading from the Market Place to the Abbey Church yard. I passed by the 15th century Walker Hall and the Church House. The sign I saw said it date's to 1151.


    As the name suggest's, I found Abbey Park as I walked around the Abbey Ground's.It's a really nice riverside park, with concrete pathway's, lovely garden's, sculpture's, playground, Skatepark, Water Play and general play area with trampoline, swing's, slides and sand pit and the River Avon. Along the River Bank's, were Long-boat's tethered.The site...


    Once the great Evesham Abbey stood here, founded by Saint Egwin between 700 and 710 A.D., following a vision of the Virgin Mary by Eof.Now all that remain's is the magnificent Bell Tower from 1539, and the twin churches of All Saints and St Lawrence. This happened because Henry VIII closed the monasteries in 1540. When most of the Abbey was...


    The Statue of Eof - the Legend of Evesham, is located in the Market Place, near the Round House.It depicts the swineherd Eof on his knees covering his face at the apparition of the Virgin Mary, whose face is emering from the canopy of trees.So, What is the story?"Eof was an 8th century swineherd employed by Egwin the third Bishop of Worcester,...


    The Pennywhistle sculpture I came across in the riverside Abbey Gardens.The piece was commissioned to commemorate the start of the 2007 Evesham music festival and was carved out by using a chainsaw from a cedar log.The Pennywhistle occurred thousands of years ago, but is was only in the mid 1800's, that a modern whistle with six finger holes was...


    The "Round" House isn't round, it is rectangular!Built in the late 15th century as a Merchant's House, it is now a heritage listed building, and these day's, is the National Westminster Bank.It was restored in 1964/65, and is a very nice building to view with beam's, bay window's and the black & white exterior.The interior was altered and well...
