Local Information

 

The town of Tewkesbury, England can be found in the county of Gloucestershire at the point where the River Avon and the River Severn merge. The town of Tewkesbury also has a borough under the same name which is the second largest in the county. The name actually derives from the 7th century Saxon name of Thecosbury, which was founded during a hermitage by Theoc.

There is evidence of a church in Tewkesbury which is older than the abbey which can be found there today. This church helps to signify that during the Saxon era Tewkesbury was of considerable proportions and continued well after the start of Tewkesbury’s abbey in 1090.

Furthermore, Tewkesbury is noted as the location of the Bloody Meadow which can be found in the southern end of town. This was the location of the Battle of Tewkesbury which occurred in 1471 between Edward IV and Lancaster, known as a historic battle in the War of the Roses. Later, under the control of Elizabeth I, Tewkesbury would receive its incorporation.

Tewkesbury played a pivotal role in the Monmouth Rebellion which took place in 1685 as part of the religious dissent. Furthermore, an academy for dissenters was founded by Samuel Jones in which it is noted that Archbishop Thomas Secker as well as Archbishop Joseph Butler came from back in the 18th century.

Tewkesbury is prone to flood damage much like most of the Gloucestershire County. The most prominent flooding of recent time occurred in 2007 when the region made international news. This was considered the worst flooding in British history and can easily be compared to the great flood in the United States along the Mississippi River. In one day, over 5 inches of rain fell over the county and since Tewkesbury has 2 rivers that merge within its limits, the city of Tewkesbury suffered the worst of the 2007 flood.

There are many popular attractions in the city of Tewkesbury due to its long and colourful history. Tewkesbury is also the location of the oldest home in the county of Gloucestershire. The town much like the rest of Gloucestershire County features an annual water festival thanks to the naturally occurring mineral spas which can be found throughout the region.
