Tewkesbury

One of England’s finest medieval towns set at the confluence of the rivers Avon and Severn. Just look up at the gables of the many ancient buildings and admire (or venture into) one of the 30 narrow alleyways that make up this historic place so magnificently brought to life in John Moore’s Brensham Trilogy.

In the Middle Ages Tewkesbury was a flourishing centre of commerce: flour milling, mustard, brewing, malting, shipping. Today, it has its flourmills and is a centre for boating and tourism. It is still a busy market town of half-timbered buildings, overhanging upper storeys and carved doorways. Following the recent floods the town has a new energy and purpose. Note the Tourist Information Centre and Out of the Hat Museum which symbolise the ambitions of the Town’s elders.
