819.—Bridge at Evesham., in Evesham, Worcestershire, England more
“About two miles and a half from Evesham is an elevated point near the village of Twyford, where the Alcester Road is crossed by another track. The [River] Avon is not more than a mile distant on either hand, for, flowing from Offenham to Evesham (Fig. 819), a distance of about three miles it encircles that town, returning in nearly a parallel direction, about the same distance, to Charlbury.” (p. 219)
Evesham is famous for the Battle of Evesham on the fourth of August, in the year 1265. Simon de Montfort and his knights were killed by Prince Edward. Later, in 1644 during the Civil War, King Charles stayed here.
The picture shows in the foreground a bridge over the River Avon, with two people in a small fishing boat and a group of people sitting on the bank. In the background we see Evesham parish church, a house (probably the Vicarage) and a spire that marks the East end of the church.
