Bredon: A Great Place For Walkers (2023)

The parish of Bredon in the Cotswolds (designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966) encompasses the area south of Bredon Hill on the left bank of the River Avon and includes the parish itself and several hamlets such as Bredon’s Norton, Hardwick, Kinsham, Mitton and Westmancote.

Bredon Hill, one of England’s finest natural areas, provides a range of habitats, including calcareous grassland and scrub. The parish supports an impressive number of rare species.

Sutton, Mitton, Norton and Westmancote chapels of Bredon belonged to the Bishop of Worcester until 1287, when they were transferred to Westbury collegiate church until Queen Elizabeth I took possession of its manor.

Constructed in the 13th century, St. Mary Church stands as a striking landmark with its single nave and west tower topped with an open timber roof. Constructed out of rubble masonry, the tower is divided into four bays by oak posts on stone plinths, and supports its weight from below beneath its spire.

Get to Bredon by car in just over two hours from Heathrow Airport.
