"UPTON-ON-SEVERN, a parish, post and market town in the lower division of Pershore hundred, county Worcester, 10 miles S. of Worcester, and 5 W. of Defford railway station. It is a station on the Tewkesbury and Malvern railway. It is situated on the river Severn, which is here navigable for vessels of 100 tons burden, and is crossed by a bridge erected in 1853 in place of an older one destroyed by a flood in 1852. It is a polling place for the county elections, and is supposed to occupy the site of the Roman station Upocessa, mentioned by Ravennas."
