Guarlford Village

Description of our Village


Village sign

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, where there is a sharp bend by the church. At the turning into the village you will see the village sign and a red phone box

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.
