Evesham was once revealed as the most popular market town for wealthy pensioners, with more of that generation moving there than anywhere else. The report by Experian noted that well-off pensioners were, for some reason, choosing this little market town over traditional seaside retirement locations. So, what’s prompting these people to move there? And, more importantly, if you’re considering moving to Worcestershire, is Evesham really a good shout? Before we offer four reasons to move to Evesham, let’s take a look at some vitals.
What’s Evesham all about, then?Located in the Wychavon district of Worcestershire (yep, we had to look that up), Evesham is a market town which can be found smack-bang in the middle of England. It has a population of around 25,000 and is roughly equidistant between Stratford-Upon-Avon, Cheltenham, and Worcester. This is, arguably, one of the key reasons Evesham has tempted so many retirees to set up camp within its four walls. There is one downside of Evesham which is worth noting, though. It sits on the bank of the River Avon which meanders through the town centre and is, unfortunately, rather susceptible to flooding. The 2007 floods were recorded as the most severe in history. It therefore pays to do plenty of research in terms of where to live in Evesham, but here are four reasons it just might be a good idea for you and your family.
