"MARTLEY, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of Doddingtree, county Worcester, 8 miles N.W. of Worcester, its post town. The parish, which is extensive, is situated in the fertile vale of Horsham, near the river Teme, which bounds it on the S. It includes the hamlet of Hillampton. The land is partly in hop-grounds, the produce of which is of the finest quality. The parish also abounds with luxuriant orchards of apple and pear trees. There is a quarry of good limestone, used for burning into lime, as well as for building purposes and repairing the roads."
