It gives its name to the Borough of Tewkesbury, of which the town is the second largest settlement. It lies in the far north of the county, forming part of the border with Worcestershire.The name Tewkesbury comes from Theoc, the name of a Saxon who founded a hermitage there in the 7th century, and in the Old English language was called ''''. An erroneous derivation from Theotokos enjoyed currency in the monastic period of the town's history.The Battle of Tewkesbury, which took place on 4 May 1471, was one of the decisive battles of the Wars of the Roses.GeographyNearby places Bredon Bishop's Cleeve Cheltenham Evesham Gloucester Pershore Malvern (Great Malvern) Upton upon Severn Cotswolds Forest of Dean Malvern Hills Winchcombe Gretton Worcester
