Burgums and Burghams of the "FF" family tree lived here, or nearby.

TIDENHAM ST MARY has an early 13th century west tower supported by clasping buttresses with lancet windows. Another upper part was added to the tower in the 15th century, which could be scene from the River Severn, thus acting as a beacon for navigation. Entering the church through a south porch into the nave, you face the north aisle ahead and the chancel is to your right. All are 13th century. The church was much renovated in 1858.

Tidenham Chase St Michael and All Angels, built in 1888, is a few miles further north in the parish. It sits in a clearing and has a rock-faced nave, chancel, south porch and a bellcote.
