Eldersfield is a village and parish in the Pershore Hundred of Worcestershire. It stands exactly ten miles east of Ledbury and ten miles north of Gloucester; this fact can be found on a milestone on the side of the B4211 road that runs through Corse Lawn.

The parish church is dedicated to St John the Baptist and is in the Diocese of Worcester.[1] The parish registers survive from 1718, and there are bishops' transcripts for the earlier registers starting in 1561.[2] The Savage family were the local worthies and numerous of their 17th-century tombs in the church and graves in the churchyard were recorded by Nash c1780, including Christopher Savage gent. (1600-1681).[3]

Gadbury Camp

The Iron Age fort of Gadbury Camp can be found in the parish, to the east of the village. It is a listed monument.[4][5]
