Clevelode

CLEVELODE, a chapelry, in the parish of Powick, union of Upton-on-Severn, Lower division of the hundred of Pershore, Upton and W. divisions of the county of Worcester, 6 miles (S. S. W.) from Worcester; containing 31 inhabitants. It comprises between 300 and 400 acres, chiefly meadow land; the site is elevated, and the surface undulated, and in some parts ornamented with wood. The river Severn flows past the village, west of which is the road from Worcester to Upton. This was formerly a separate rectory, and is stated to have been annexed to Madresfield, in 1595: the chapel has been demolished.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
