"BREDONS NORTON, (or Norton-by-Bredon), a hamlet and chapelry in the parish of Bredon, middle division of the hundred of Oswaldslow, county Worcester, 5 miles N.E. of Tewkesbury, its post town, and 1 mile S.E. of the Bredon station on the Bristol and Birmingham railway. The village, which, is of small extent, is situated near the river Avon, under Bredon-Hill. The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in agriculture. The tithes were commuted for land and a money payment under an Enclosure Act in 1814. The living is a curacy annexed to the rectory* [the asterisk denotes that there is a parsonage and glebe belonging to the living] of Bredon, in the diocese of Worcester. The church is an ancient structure with a square tower. The parochial charities produce about £17 per annum.
