Pershore Abbey Peregrine Watch - LIVE

We are thrilled to announce that the Pershore Abbey Peregrine camera is now LIVE.

This project is the result of many hours hard work by a dedicated team. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our anonymous donor for the camera, Cllr Dan Boatright & Worcestershire County Council for funding for cabling and screen and materials and most of all, Jason Marshall, Christopher Kimberley, Martyn Spence and Judy Dale for all their time and effort spending many man hours working hard to enable us to be able to watch from our devices. These things are not easy when dealing with a Grade I Listed Building but they have managed to pull it off successfully, just in time for the breeding season.

The nesting platform was made and donated by Jason Marshall last year, and erected by Dawson Steeplejacks with funding from the Friends of Pershore Abbey. Necessary permissions were sought and given. This year, fresh gravel was carefully applied (hands free) via a shoot.

Update 17.05.2024: All four eggs have hatched. Each of the chicks are being well looked after and we look forward to watching them grow strong over the coming weeks.

Celebrating the Ministry of Women

On Thursday 20 June at 1900 there will be a special service in Pershore Abbey to mark 30 years since women were first ordained priest. Bishop John will preach at the service, Archdeacon Nikki Groarke will lead the prayers, and there will be cava and cake after the service!
