The village stands on the river Teme, near the Newnham station of the Tenbury and Bewdley railway, and near the boundary with Salop, 5¼ miles E by N of Tenbury; and has a post office under Tenbury.—The parish contains also the hamlet of Newnham, and the chapelries of Knighton-upon-Teme and Pensax. Acres, 6,252. Real property, £11,170; of which £270 are in mines. Pop., 1,760. ...

Houses, 375. The property is subdivided. Eardiston House is the property of George Wallace, Esq. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Hereford.
