Kemerton

Kemerton
Kemerton is a village and civil parish in Worcestershire in England. It lies at the extreme south of the county in the local government district of Wychavon. Until boundary changes in 1931 it formed part of neighbouring Gloucestershire, and it remains in the Diocese of Gloucester. The northern half of the parish lies within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The parish is approximately 3.6 miles (5.8 km) long by 0.75 mile (1.2 km) wide, descending from the summit of Bredon Hill in the north (981 ft) to the Carrant Brook in the south (c.100 feet), encompassing 1,660 acres (6.7 km). The north and south parish boundaries are recorded in a Saxon charter of the 8th-century. Notable historic features include Kemerton Camp, an Iron Age hill fort surmounting Bredon Hill, thought to have been vacated suddenly after a considerable battle. On the fort’s south rampart is a two-storey stone tower known as Parsons Folly (or Kemerton Tower), built in the mid-18th century by John Parsons V, MP (1732–1805), the squire of Kemerton, who reputedly wished to raise the summit of Bredon Hill to 1,000 feet (300 m). Significant buildings include the Church of St Nicholas, Kemerton Court and Bell’s Castle, which dates from the 17th century or earlier, and was remodelled in the nineteenth century for Admiral Bell. The parish includes several important wildlife sites including the Kemerton Lake Nature Reserve and sections of the Bredon Hill Special Area of Conservation, which are managed by the Kemerton Conservation Trust. Well known residents of Kemerton have included the anarchist publisher Charlotte Wilson and the writer John Moore.
