In the 13th Century, the Benedictine Monks needed to cross the River Avon from Evesham Abbey to Hampton to tend the hillside vineyard on the land behind what is now Ferry House. The solution to this problem was the Hampton Ferry which has now been in use as a link between the village of Hampton and the town of Evesham for almost 800 years.

Very little is known about the history of the ferry following the closure of the abbey, but the fact that it remains today, and the need for a crossing between Hampton and Evesham for locals would suggest that it has been in continual use since its creation.
