A visit to Pershore

Pershore is a nice little town with a very fine Abbey and some pleasing buildings. So I am going to do a series on the town. I know I have posted pictures of Pershore before but what the heck!

I look forward to this because I have never really studied the place. The name does not sound very English. More like foreign muck.
Bill Phillips: The name is derived from the old Saxon name Pershe (pronounced Perhee . The Pershe family were significant landowners in the area. The name morphed eventually into Percy. the ore is from an old Saxon word for plum, ora or orum. Pershore is famous now for its plum festival and the Pershe family were responsible for planting many of the original plum orchards

Indeed, what the heck, BIll. This is just a wonderful picture. Only that one man sitting on that bench and that pedestrians traffic light. What a wonderful picture this is.
Bill Phillips: The famous Belisha beacon named after the then minister of transport Leslie Hore-Belisha. He was responsible for a considerable reforming of road transport rules and made the rods considerably safer. He was also responsible for the introduction of the Highway Code
Really nice buildings, Bill and I like the light smile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Martin. It was a good day for taking snaps
Over the moon with this up coming series Bill.
Bill Phillips: And so you should be Michael.
We really enjoyed our time in Pershore on the day after Croome, there are some fine old buildings there as well as the abbey.
Bill Phillips: There are indeed and some decent independent shops too...as no doubt Maureen noticed
We visited Savannah last year ( wonderful place ! ) and this building is reminiscent of some there, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I remember seeing your and Ellie's pics of Savannah. These balconies give a rather Regency look to a Georgian building

Bill Phillips: Funnily enough Louis I have never been in there....honestly!!

Bill Phillips: That's interesting Care. What part of Australia?
