The Round of Gras pub at Badsey

The Round of Gras is one of two pubs in Badsey. Its name catches the eye and misleads some visitors. In fact, the name celebrates the local tradition of asparagus growing, and when it is in season, you can eat asparagus meals at the pub's restaurant. The pub acquired this name in 1967. Before then it was known as the Royal Oak.

This series of photographs takes you on a short tour around the village of Badsey in Worcestershire. The pictures were taken in 2000 and 2001 by Richard Phillips and Elizabeth Noyes.
