Pictures of Ashleworth
This is a lovely pastoral village set beside the west bank of the River Severn, in the middle of a typical rural Gloucestershire landscape.
Visitors here will note colourful cottage gardens, two interesting village pubs - the Queens Arms and the Boat Inn which over a century or so ago was a quay-off call for Bargemen, these days the Boat is more likely to be full of the boating fraternity who sail the waters of the Severn.
There is little in the way of facilities in the village, save for the village stores, but compensating for this is the peaceful atmosphere and the charm of the buildings set beside impressive St. Andrew's Church, whose spire can be seen as a landmark. The church is surrounded by graves and tombs of local families, and church registers date back to 1566. Imposing Ashleworth Court dates from the 15th century, this retains many original features and is now a comfortable bed and breakfast establishment. At the side of the court is a picturesque Tithe Barn which has recently undergone restoration work by the National Trust.
Visitors can enjoy walks in the pleasant rural countryside, but beware, the village is prone to flooding when the Severn rises through excess water flowing down from Wales.
Interesting visits from Ashleworth include the market towns of Ledbury, Tewkesbury and the riverside town of Upton-upon-Severn.
