Little Malvern  Worcestershire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Little Malvern like this:

MALVERN (LITTLE), a parish in Upton-on-Severn district, Worcester; under the Malvern hills, 1 mile S of Malvern Wells r. station, and 4½ ENE of Ledbury. Posttown, Malvern Wells, Worcestershire. Acres, 943. Real property, £927. Pop., 104. Houses, 20. The manor, with Little Malvern Court, belongs to M. ...

Berington, Esq. A Benedictine priory, a cell to Worcester abbey, was founded here in 1171, by two brothers, Joceline and Edred, who were the first and the second priors; and, at the dissolution, it had a prior and seven monks. An ancient camp is in the S. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Worcester. Value, £44. Patron, Earl Somers. The church consists of the chancel and tower of the ancient priory church; is in good condition; and recently underwent interior repair. The other parts of the old priory buildings are in ruin. A Roman Catholic chapel, in lieu of a previous one, was built in 1862; is a handsome stone edifice, in the pointed style; wants a nave, intended to be hereafter added; and has schools attached to it.
