In the 1950s T.J.S. Baylis wrote a series of articles for the Evesham Journal on Evesham inns and signs. He was well suited to the task, being a native of Evesham, a former town councillor, a founder member and former chairman of the Vale of Evesham Historical Society, and one of the founder members of the Almonry Museum. The current book collects together his articles on Evesham inns and signs, supplementing them with appendices and indexes (on local people, places, trades, inns and innkeepers). These articles, the result of years of careful thought and detailed research, are full of humour and local knowledge and a boon to anyone interested in local inns, signs, or the history of the town.

"In c.701, a minster was founded in the lower Avon Valley on a deserted promontory called Evesham. Over the next five hundred years it became a Benedictine abbey and turned the Vale of Evesham into a federation of Christian communities. A landscape of scattered farms grew into one of open fields and villages, manor houses and chapels. Evesham itself developed into a town, and the abbots played a role in the affairs of the kingdom. But individual contemplation and prayer within the abbey were compromised by its corporate aspirations. As Evesham abbey waxed ever grander, exerting a national influence, it became a ready patron of the arts but had less time for private spirituality. The story ends badly in the prolonged scandal of Abbot Norreis, a libertine whose appetites caused religion to collapse at Evesham before his own sudden downfall. This book integrates the evidence of archaeology, maps, and documents in a continuous narrative that pays as much attention to religious and cultural life as to institutional and economic matters. It provides a complete survey over one of the most important and wealthy Benedictine abbeys and its landscape, a stage on which was enacted the tense interplay of lordship and prayer."--Back cover.
