Formerly the Manor of Bengeworth and the home of the priors of Evesham Abbey.
Originally the house was much larger and the present building, which is divided
into 2 dwellings, was restored 1975 when good interior features were revealed.

projects to street; modern tile roof. No 34 has 2 modern windows (with glazing
bars), altered doorway with rectangular fanlight, bracketted weather hood and modern
