CASTLE-MORTON, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of PERSHORE, county of WORCESTER, 5 miles (W.S.W.) from Upton upon Severn, containing 788 inhabitants. The living is a discharged perpetual curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Longdon, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Worcester, rated in the king's books at £5. 8. 6. The church, dedicated to St. Gregory, is a very ancient structure, with a fine old tower and steeple: opposite to it is an artificial mound, fifty feet high, surrounded by a moat, or ditch, supposed to have been thrown up to protect the church during the civil war in the reign of Charles I. There are charitable bequests for the poor amounting to about £30 per annum.
