This book looks at how Evesham has evolved along the banks of the River Avon since the mid-nineteenth century, from the coming of the railway and the construction of the Workman Bridge to the present day.

 

Looking at the transformation of the meadows that were once used for grazing and agriculture; the buildings that have been part of the development of the riverbanks; the rowing club and steamboat proprietors who played a significant part in attracting the tourists towards the river; together with a glimpse into some of the influential people of the time. It contains many amusing stories and anecdotes with plenty of information and would appeal to anyone with an interest in local history.
