"GREAT WITLEY, a parish in the lower division of Doddingtree hundred, county Worcester, 5 miles S.W. of Stourport, and 10 N.W. of Worcester. The parish, which includes the hamlet of Redmarley, is intersected by the roads from Worcester to Ludlow, and from Staffordshire into Herefordshire. An abundant supply of water is obtained from the Abberley and Woodbury hills, on the latter of which are traces of an ancient British encampment, also said to have been occupied by Owen Glendower in his war with Henry IV. Limestone is abundant, containing various descriptions of fossils, and some bivalves are found in the argillaceous stratum."
