Abberley is home to Abberley Hall School, a preparatory school set in the grounds of Abberley Hall, which also contain the Abberley Clock Tower, the setting for the children’s book by Gene Kemp, The Clock Tower Ghost.

The name Abberley probably relates to the 6th-century Saxon chief Eobald, by way of Eobaldelega, then Eobaldsleigh.[8] Abberley is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086–7 as Edboldelege, when it was held by Ralph de Tosny.
