Offenham Village lies approx. 3 miles to the north  of Evesham town, in Worcestershire.  The village has no through road and nestles in the curve of the river Avon.

Offenham is steeped in history linked with Evesham Abbey and the furthest bank of the river is thought to be the site of Simon de Montfort’s Army’s last stand. A small spit of land here called ‘Dead Man’s Ait’ is the site of many finds of arrow heads and bones.

Dominating the head of Main Street is one of the few remaining, wooden maypoles in the country and along Main Street can be seen the longest thatch in Worcestershire, spanning 7 cottages.

The village is known in the area for its market gardening and following the modern way of growing, much of the land is now under glass. Indeed it is said, on a sunny day and from a higher vantage point, that Offenham glitters where sunlight touches glass.

    The website does not have an area to do with the parish magazine. Please submit your advertisement to offenhameditorial@ourbenefice.org.uk

    Hi I wondered if anyone has any information on old school house dating back to when it was a school and was first built? I am trying to trace its history

  3. Jenny says:

    no information about a local church . Very disappointing.

      The website is still being built. Details about the history of the village and interesting buildings within it, including the church are still to be added.

    My 3 x great grandparents are on the 1891 and 1901 census as living in Offenham at Knowledge Cottages, Boat Lane. Could you tell me if these cottages still exist, please?

    Many thanks,
