Tenbury Renamed by Welsh Water

Tenbury - A Stronghold by the River Teme.

We should by all probability be called Tembury.

Bury is a Saxon name meaning a stronghold, and Ten is likely to have been a variation of the spelling of the River Teme.

Welsh Water working in Bromyard have decided on their sign that is should be spelt Tenbry. Bry is usually a variation of By, so we are now By Teme.

So no longer a stronghold.
