15 Dec The Mediaeval market Town of Tewkesbury, located at the confluence of the River Severn and the River Avon.
Situated in the north of Gloucester at the confluence of the River Severn and the River Avon is the Mediaeval market town of Tewkesbury. Having significant importance in the Wars of the Roses which took place on the 4th of May 1471 and after the completion of the beautiful Abbey, Tewkesbury grew in popularity and now nearly eleven thousand people call the town their home. Having been born and raised in Tewkesbury the renowned Author of “Portrait of Elmbury”, John Moor, set his most well-known novel around the town. In 1852, Dinah Craik, the Victorian author paid a visit to Tewkesbury and a few years later based her most well-known story, “John Halifax Gentleman” also on the Town. The children’s television programme, “Rosie and Jim” filmed two of their very popular episodes in the town as did the BBC show, “The Antiques RoadShow”.
Several notable people were born and raised in Tewkesbury including, Anna Ford, (Newsreader), Raymond Priestley, (Antarctic Explorer), Alfred Jones, (Cricketer) and Mel Nicholls, (Paralympic wheelchair racer). One of the most famous people to be born and raised in the town was the humble, family orientated, Harry Workman, politician, businessman and family man who sadly passed away in the town in January 2016. He founded the Cotteswold Dairy and worked extensively for many years to grow the fledgling business into the successful Dairy it is today. He features extensively in the book entitled, “Fuelled by milk” which relates a lot of his personal values and ethics including honesty, hard-work, and integrity, he also possessed great listening skills and was an advocate of open and frank communication.
