The village is on the river Avon, near the Birmingham and Gloucester railway, and between the hills of Malvern and Bredon. It is famous for the siege it sustained against the parliamentary forces during the civil war, and for the signal bravery displayed by the then lord of the manor, Sir William Russell."
