"GREAT HAMPTON, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of Blackenhurst, county Worcester, 1 mile S.W. of Evesham, its post town and railway station. It includes the township of Little Hampton. The village is situated on the river Avon, and on the turnpike road to Worcester. It formerly had an extensive vineyard belonging to Evesham Abbey. Between this place and Evesham is a fine bridge across the Avon, the construction of which, after great difficulties, was successfully accomplished by Henry Workman, Esq., at an outlay of £13,000, part of which was defrayed by voluntary contributions. The land is very fertile, and chiefly meadow."
