The hills command extensive prospects over the Vale of Evesham and the surrounding country, and are intersected by picturesque winding valleys. Freestone is quarried in the neighbourhood. The living is a vicarage* [the asterisk denotes that there is a parsonage and glebe belonging to the living] in the diocese of Worcester, of the value of £240, in the patronage of trustees."
