"OFFENHAM, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of Blackenhurst, county Worcester, 2 miles N.E. of Evesham, its railway station and post town, and 16 from Worcester. The village, which is of small extent, is situated at the ferry on the river Avon, and is chiefly agricultural. Offenham derives its name from the Saxon king Offa, who once resided here. There are traces of a seat of the abbots of Evesham, to whom the manor subsequently belonged. There is no carriage road through the village, which is exceedingly retired."
