"OMBERSLEY, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of Oswaldslow, county Worcester, 4 miles S.W. of Droitwich, its post town and railway station, and 6 N. of Worcester. The village, which is extensive, is situated on the river Severn, and is wholly agricultural. Ombersley had formerly a market, under grant from Edward III. to Evesham Abbey, but the privilege has long been disused. The manor came from the Mores to Archbishop Sandys, in whose family it still remains. The Worcestershire hounds meet in the neighbourhood. The land, which is extremely fertile, is partly in hop-grounds, and the scenery varied."
