How much do you know about our hometown of Tewkesbury?

Emsea is a leading laser cutting and water jet cutting service company based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire – but how much do you know about the market town where we’re based?

Tewkesbury is a beautiful spot in the county of Gloucestershire, exceptionally well connected to the rest of the UK given its proximity to the M5 motorway and Ashchurch railway station – just 94 miles from London. It dates back to the 7th Century and owes it’s name to an old Saxon who founded a hermitage there. The town features many notable Medieval, Tudor buildings, but its major claim to fame is Tewkesbury Abbey, a fine Norman abbey, visited by thousands each year from across the world. It has the tallest Norman tower in the country at 148 feet but once reached 260ft until a storm blew the wooden spire down in 1559.

Tewkesbury is home to a wide range of sports clubs, including cricket, football, rugby, cycling and running. In fact, it’s reported that over 10% of journeys made in the town are by bike!
