Overbury is a village and parish in southern Worcestershire close to the border with Gloucestershire.

It is located midway between the towns of Evesham and Tewkesbury to the south of Bredon Hill.

The manor of Overbury was purchased by the banking family of Martin in the 18th century from the Parsons family, members of whom also owned neighbouring Kemerton Court. The Martins rebuilt Overbury Court in c.1740, and it is still occupied by their descendants in 2007.

In October 2014 Roman skeletons found at Overbury Primary School when extensions to the school were being built.[1] [2]
