Powick Worcestershire Universal British Directory 1791


Powick, two miles from Worcester, a Pleasant village on the Malvern road, has several gentleman’s seats, and being on an eminence commands pleasing views. The church is dedicated to St. Peter. Within this manor are several ancient mansions, viz. Beauchamp’s Court, formerly the habitation of the honourable family of the Beauchamps, lineally descended from Henry VII. Prior’s Court belonged to the prior of Great Malvern, but now to the Earl of Coventry; and Pixam, formerly belonging to Lord Clinton. Powick is noted for having a battle fought here in 1642, known by the name of the skirmish of Wickfield, which lies between Powick bridge and the cherry-orchard, where sixteen hundred men were drawn up.
