Bordesley  Worcestershire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Bordesley like this:

BORDESLEY, a hamlet in Tardebigg parish, Worcester; near the Worcester and Birmingham canal, 5 miles E by S of Bromsgrove. A Cistertian Abbey was founded here, in 1138, by the Empress Maud; and given, at the dissolution, to Lord Windsor; and the chapel attached to it is still standing. Bordesley Park is the seat of the Dugdales.

The location is where the name "Bordesley" appears on the modern 1:25,000 map. Additional information about this locality is available for Alvechurch
