The Priory Church of St Mary and St Michael

Much has been written about Great Malvern and the Priory, but suffice it to say the town with its rich history was a bustling settlement by the First World War. Its major growth occurred with the coming of the water cure in the mid 19th Century, but by 1914 ‘taking the waters’ was less important in the local economy. It however remained popular with rich visitors and those wishing to retire.

The Priory supported a choir school, the Lyttelton Grammar School.
