In 2007 severe amounts of water flooded Cropthorne and the surrounding area, the B4084 road linking the towns of Evesham and Pershore collapsed and caused major hold-ups throughout the county of Worcestershire. The collapsed road was later called Cropthorne Canyon, it took nearly 6 months to be repaired and cost around £1million.
The Cropthorne Walkabout is an annual event that takes place on the Sunday and bank holiday Monday at the beginning of May each year, to coincide with the blossom season. Several of the beautiful historic gardens on the banks of the River Avon are opened to the public and are visited by thousands of tourists to the villages.
Blossom Trail: Cropthorne is on the Vale of Evesham Blossom Trail, the two weeks in the spring when all the apple, pear, and cherry trees are in bloom - weather permitting.
Holland House: Cropthorne has its own Holland House (not to be confused with the one in Kensington). Set in beautiful gardens on the edge of the River Avon, the black and white timbered Tudor buildings offer a ‘safe space’ where people are encouraged to feel at home and allowed to get on with what they came to do, whether it is a conference, retreat or training.
