Pershore Heritage and History Society

Welcome to the website for the PHHS and the Heritage Centre. Pershore Heritage and History Society organises talks on history (visitors welcome), and outings for its members.

The Heritage Centre (in the Town Hall, High Street) is managed by the PHHS and is entirely staffed and run by volunteers. The aim is to preserve and celebrate the rich heritage of this small market town in the Vale of Evesham, Worcestershire. The medieval Abbey and Bridge and the fine Georgian buildings are now the most striking features of the town but the Heritage Centre explores many different aspects of life in the area.


The meeting and the AGM on Thursday 1 March has been cancelled.

The AGM will be on Thursday 5 April - further details to come.

PHHS members took part in a project called WW1 in the Vale and received HLF-funding (2015-2016). Some of that research and the activities we took part in will be included on this website.

Anyone with connections to Pershore, through their family or by having lived in the area, is encouraged to contact us and share your information (see Contacts). The PHC has a large collection of folders compiled by volunteers on a variety of subjects, including families, places, local villages, and buildings. All are available to view by visitors and researchers.

Please note that this website is still under construction, and pages will be added over the coming months.
