Pictures of Bewdley
a Historic Market Town in the county of Worcestershire
The heady days of medieval prosperity are recalled in the cobbled Shambles, a street built on the site of the old butchers market in 1783. The shambles, now houses the Bewdley Crafts Museum which keeps alive the old crafts of yester-year.
Tickenhill House, stands on a hill above the town. The brick facade of this mansion was added to the remains of a Tudor royal palace in 1738. In 1499 this was the site of the marriage by proxy of Prince Arthur to Catherine of Aragon. In later years Catherine's daughter Mary I, made a visit to the palace. The mature parkland surrounding the house is absolutely stunning and a joy to see.
A museum in the town records the history of the town and surrounding villages. There is an easy to follow town trail which shows almost all the town's historic buildings and interesting features.
More latterly, during the winter months this enchanting little town has suffered severe flooding from the River Severn. New flood barriers are now in place giving the town a good measure of protection.
Attractions to visit include; The Severn Valley Railway, The West Midlands Safari Park and the lovely Wyre Forest
