Bredon Hill's Villages

Bredon Hill's Villages

A circumnavigation of Bredon Hill is a fine introduction to the beautiful villages of Kemerton, Overbury, Conderton, Ashton-under-Hill and Elmley Castle. A lovely mixture of Cotswold stone, and black-and-white timbered buildings with many fine Inns, and peaceful churchyards. Various footpaths lead up to the summit from Elmley and Kemerton. Superb views from this isolated limestone hill at 961 ft. where you will find an Iron Age fort with two ramparts. Scene of great battle at time of Christ possibly against the Belgic invaders. The hacked remains of 50 men were found near the entrance. Superb views over to Wales, theV ale of Evesham, the rivers Severn and Avon, and to the Cotswold hills.
