The village of Upton Snodsbury is located at the junction of the B4082 with the A422 six miles east of the CIty of Worcester. The settlement contains some 150 dwellings, an "Ofsted outstanding" first school, ancient church, village shop/post office, modern village hall and a pub. There is also a recreational park with a five-a-side football pitch and playground.
Upton Snodsbury has been described as ‘a jewel in Worcestershire’ and in earlier times as ‘a village in the orchards’. The village was founded in about the seventh century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. There are some 26 Listed Grade II ‘black and white’ timber framed houses in the village – most of them located in a Conservation Area near the church. The remaining houses are a mix of victorian and twentieth century houses. Together they form an attractive small village set in the Worcestershire countryside.
