Rebuilt on the site of the old church in 1881-2. Some 14thc. stone was reused in the Victorian building, but the only 12thc. work is the font.


Four manses at Abberton were among the possessions said to have been confirmed to the Abbey of Pershore by King Edgar in 972. At the date of DS two berewicks, Edbritone and Edbritintune, both probably identifiable with the modern Abberton, belonged to the Abbey of Pershore's manor of Pershore. The manor of Abberton was described as three carucates of land, worth three marks yearly, in 1291. It was held by the Abbey of Pershore until the Dissolution, when it passed to the Crown.
