Cleeve Prior , site logo.


Cleeve Prior is a small village of 249 dwellings near to the east bank of the River Avon.

Cleeve Prior lies on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire border between Evesham and Stratford-upon-Avon. 

The centre of the village forms the Cleeve Prior Conservation Area and the use of local blue lias stone throughout all building types and periods bestows a strong character and local identity. 

Adding special interest to the area, the continued significance of the early origins of Cleeve Prior as a Saxon and Medieval farming community is clearly illustrated in the presence of numerous farm buildings from the 16th to 19th centuries.
