WELCOME

The Pershore Heritage Centre is entirely staffed and run by volunteers whose aim is to preserve that which is worth preserving without impeding progress, and to promote and exhibit items of local public interest.


The Centre is to celebrate the history of PERSHORE in Worcestershire, England. Pershore is an old market town in the Vale of Evesham and is linked to a large number of villages, which surround it. The Abbey, Bridge and Bredon Hill are its most significant features, but many other aspects of Pershore’s past is on record.
