Astley is a village, and a civil parish in Worcestershire, England, about two miles outside Stourport-on-Severn and seven miles south-west of Kidderminster.A range of English white wines including sparkling wines have been produced in Astley since 1983. The wines have won over 100 awards, and are now Quality Wine status, three of which have received International Wine and Spirit Competition awards.HistoryThere is evidence in the village of Norman heritage. The house Astley Towne has a Norman cellar.Near St Peter's Church are the remains of a priory built in 1088. The priory was founded by Ralph de Todeni who was given the manor of Eastlie (Astley) for his service at the Battle of Hastings. It was an alien Benedictine House, belonging to a parent monastery in Normandy. The prior’s well remains, but is overgrown. To the East of the priory, well-defined earthworks of a medieval village have been found.Astley was in the lower division of Doddingtree Hundred.Following the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834 Astley Parish ceased to be responsible for maintaining the poor in its parish. This responsibility was transferred to Martley Poor Law Union.St Peter's church is of possible c12 century origins although its origins may have been based on an existing priory.
