Great Malvern Lewis Worcestershire Directory 1820


Malvern Great, 7 miles from Worcester, containing 163 houses, and 819 inhabitants, well known for its delightful prospects, and the salubrity and pureness of the air. There are several hotels for the accommodation of visitors, it being frequented by the most polite circles in the country. The church which formerly belonged to a magnificent monastery, was purchased by the inhabitants at the dissolution, and for its beauty of antiquity is not to be equalled in this part of the country.

The admirable pile of Malvern Hills, which give name to this village is situated in Worcestershire and Herefordshire, and from the survey made by order of the Board of Ordnance some time since, it appears that the extreme height was 1444 feet above the level of the sea.

The views from them extend over 10 counties, and are beautiful beyond description; from these hills issue several springs, one called Holy Well, about half way up the summit, and about 2 miles from Great Malvern, is accounted very salutary, and has long been used in all cases where chalybeate waters are given, with considerable success.

Malvern Little and Newland are hamlets to this parish.
