The 2011 census recorded a population of 2,881 making it the smallest town in the county.Upton is situated on the west bank of the River Severn and is located 5mi southeast of Malvern. The town has a distinctive tower and copper-clad cupola – known locally as the "Pepperpot" – the only surviving remnant of a former church.HistoryUntil the later half of the 20th century, the bridge at Upton was the only one across the River Severn between Worcester and Tewkesbury; the present bridge was built in 1940. Oliver Cromwell's soldiers crossed the Severn here to win the battle of Upton before the main Battle of Worcester in the English Civil War.TodayThe population of the civil parish in 2011 was recorded at 2,881 – an increase from 2,859 recorded in 2001.
