Evesham Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 121 photos
The rural Market town, Evesham is situated in the picturesque Vale of Evesham about 30 miles from Birmingham and only 6 miles from the Cotswolds. Although the Cattle Market has long gone to be replaced by yet more flats there are still other markets. There is the daily covered market and the Saturday Market in the town's Market Square selling all sorts. Occasionaly there are Farmers and Street Markets selling more specialised product, check the what's on section for dates.
Evesham is famous for several things :PLUMS, APPLES, PEARS and most famously ASPARAGUS. SIMON DE MONTFORT known as the father of the English Parliament died here in the Battle of Evesham in 1265 (there will be more of this in a travelogue soon). Evesham's name is derived from a swineherd called Eoves who claimed to see a vision of the Virgin Mary, which also inspired the creation of Evesham Abbey which was mostly destroyed after King Henry VIII disolved the monastries. The only remaining part is the 110 ft high Bell Tower (pictured above) and a few walls.
Evesham is fast becoming very multi-cultural with a very large influx of Polish nationals and people from the former Eastern Bloc countries and this is reflected in a number of shops opening to cater for them.
