THE MARKET TOWN OF PERSHORE. Explorer's Pack.

Arthur has been reading the Time Traveller’s Guide and he thinks he has discovered something big, something very big.  If he is right he will be able to tell everyone why there were two abbots in Pershore on that day in 1204. He also thinks he knows why they shared Pershore market but he has some questions that still need to be answered.  He and Gruff are on their way to Pershore to find answers but will he be able to recognise anything and how will he find his way around?  They need your help.

WHERE TO GO

  2. Pershore is a small town and is easy to stroll around, take your time and enjoy it. 
  3. Walk up Bridge Street passed the beautiful old houses and into the town.
  4. Turn left into Broad Street. This broad street is where there have been markets of all sorts for hundreds of years. You may be lucky and find there is a market here but mostly these markets coincide with special events in the town. On these occasions the traffic is banned and the parking spaces are laid out with stalls.
  5. Walk down broad Street to the junction with Church Walk and turn right.
  6. Make your way to Pershore Abbey and explore the area round about.
