In the late 8th century King Offa of Mercia gave the settlement of Loxley to the fledgling Cathedral at Worcester. By 1086 the Domesday Book records a thriving agricultural community with a resident priest.

St Nicholas Church still stands on the site given by King Offa and the meadow by the church, where the ancient ploughed strips can be seen, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
