Tenbury Wells is a small ancient market town on the River Teme in the north west corner of Worcestershire, close to the borders of Shropshire and Herefordshire.
The town centre is a conservation area and contains a good selection of independent local shops to explore with friendly personal service, including specialist food shops with local produce. The town also has an excellent selection of places to eat and drink.
The Round Market is open on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday with a small number of stalls, and the Country Market with local produce is in the Scout Hut by the Swimming Pool each Tuesday.
Fruit, notably apples and pears, together with hops were extensively grown in the Teme Valley, and a number of orchards and hopfields are still in production, supplying local cider makers and craft brewers.
Mistletoe grows readily in the area, especially on apple trees, and is harvested to supply the mistletoe and holly sales which take place at the end of November and beginning of December each year. Mistletoe from Tenbury is sold right across the country.
