About Our Village
Guarlford is a small rural Worcestershire village, the centre of which is nearly
two and a half miles from the foot of the Malvern Hills in the west; the civil
parish also embraces the Rhydd to the east and Clevelode to the north-east, both
bordering the River Severn. The B4211 road connecting Great Malvern to Upton
upon Severn passes through Guarlford. With origins in pre-Roman times, the
settlement is today home to about 250 people. At the heart of the village are the
church, St Mary's, and the Village Hall, a conventional malthouse.
The Parish Council and the Women's Institute, together with the church, help to
support the life of the community. The Guarlford History Group have published two
books about the village. "The Guarlford Story", published in 2005, is a comprehensive history of the village.
Its sequel "The Guarlford Scene", published in 2008, is a collection of photographs and stories from Victorian times to the modern day .
