Honeybourne Village was part of Evesham
Abbey and appears in the Domesday book as Huniburn - meaning the
stream on the banks where honey is gathered.
Until 1931Church Honeybourne and Cow Honeybourne were in two different counties (Gloucestshire and Worcestershire). According to local 19th century historian George May the village was called Cow Honeybourne because of the large number of cows there.
There are a number of picturesque and interesting houses : The Thatched Tavern is 13th century, various farmhouses dating back to 17th century. The church St Ecgwin's is grade 1 listed and was consecrated in 1295.
It used to be a major railway junction. Honeybourne station is only 1.5 hours from Paddington.
It used make its own bricks, many local houses are built from Honeybourne bricks but of the brickworks themselves nothing remains.
The pottery was built as the village store circa 1850 and remained so till 1996.
RAF Honeybourne was established in 1941 with many Canadian airmen serving - some lodging in this very house.
