This parish had medieval status in Warwickshire, Staffordshire and
Worcestershire at different times before transfering to Worcestershire
completely in 1844. It once formed the area of Bordesley Abbey. The
current parish came into being in 1894 and is one of the 151 parish and town
councils in Worcestershire and one of 20 in Bromsgrove.

St Bartholomew’s Church stands on a hill at Tardebigge, overlooking the
canal. A Norman church occupied the same site in 1138.

Tardebigge Cof E School is next to the church. The school was started by
the Plymouth family who lived at nearby Hewell Grange.

Tardebigge Community Hall opened in 2004 and is a popular venue for both
large and small groups and supports a wide variety of activities.

Worcestershire Birmingham Canal – below the church an ancient path
leads down to the canal, Tardebigge Tunnel and the 58 locks descending to

The Tardebigge Public House was once Tardebigge’s village hall, built in
1911 by the Plymouth family.

Hewell Grange – a residence has been sited here since the 1500s with
complete rebuilding taking place in 1712 and 1884. The Grange was sold to
the Crown, due to large death duties, and in 1946 became a Borstal Training
Centre. It held Young Offenders until 1991 when its role was changed to
house Category D Adult men. The buildings and some of the gardens are
Grade II Listed.
