| Events in Smite | 10 Places to Stay

There has been settlement in and around Smite since at least the Roman times the area is only a mile to the north of Worcester and a mile and a half south of Droitwich Spa, just off the "Salt" route: the M5 Motorway and the Worcester & Birmingham Canal run to the east of the area. The name possibly comes from the Smitan Brook which used to flow through the area. In 978 Bishop Oswald of Worcester gave a parcel of land at Smite to an Aethelnoth; in Henry II`s time (1154-1189), Godfrey the Archdeacon of Worcester held half a hide of land at Smite which had passed, by 1229, to John Washbourne also known as John de Dufford and was held by the decedents of the Wishbone's for several generations. The two farms at Smite (Upper Smite Farm and Lower Smite Farm) were included in Hindlip parish in 1880 having previously formen portion of Warndon parish. Smite Hill was transferred to Hindlip from Claines parish at the same time. Lower Smite Farm has been purchased by the Worcester Wildlife Trust, the 18th century brick farmhouse is currently the Trust Headquarters and buildings have been added to in the same style around the courtyard. The 17th century Granary has been restored to its former glory. Further down the road another former farm house is now the Pear Tree Inn and Country Hotel
