The Burgage

The Burgage

The Burgage derives its name from the mediaeval term for enclosed fields extending the confines of a town, for which tenants (burgesses) paid a cash rent instead of, as previously, feudal service.  Many of the buildings on either side of Teme Street also retain long garden plots dating back this period – a testament to the length of time, which Tenbury has been a settled and thriving community.

The Burgage today is one of Tenbury’s prettiest recreation areas with beautiful river views and many handsome trees.

There is a large open playing area used by many and home to the Applefest in October and the Round Table Bonfire in November.

Near the Teme St entrance you will also find a Children’s Play Area, Tennis Courts, the Bowling Green and the Civic Garden.

All of these areas are maintained by the Town Council Groundsman who can be contacted on 07974 436838.
