"PINVIN, a chapelry in the parish of Pershore St. Andrew, upper division of the hundred of Pershore, county Worcester, 1½ mile N. of Pershore, its post town, and 4 miles S. W. of Spetchley railway station. It is a station on the Oxford, Worcester, and Wolverhampton railway. The village, which is of small extent, is situated on a branch of the river Avon, and is wholly agricultural. The soil consists principally of clay. The tithes were commuted for land under an Enclosure Act in 1775. The living is a curacy annexed to the vicarage* [the asterisk denotes that there is a parsonage and glebe belonging to the living] of St. Andrew, in the diocese of Worcester. The church is an ancient structure, with a tower containing one bell."
