Vale of Evesham

Vale of Evesham

The fertile plains of the Vale of Evesham reach from the slopes of the Cotswold hills west towards the Malvern Hills, with the town of Evesham at its heart. The River Avon runs through it via Evesham, Pershore and the pretty countryside around the villages of Eckington and Elmley Castle. Also Ashton-under-Hill beneath Bredon Hill with excellent walking and views.

Market gardens and farms produce fruit and vegetables including the famous local asparagus, with produce available at roadside farm shops and stalls you’ll find all around ‘the Vale’.

The Asparagus Festival (April-June) and Pershore Plum Festival (August) are two important dates on the calendar. The plum and apple blossom in spring has earned the region its own AA signposted Blossom Trail (mid-March to May),

To appreciate the scale of this food bowl of England, view the Vale of Evesham from Broadway Tower, Bredon Hill or the Malvern Hills.
