Other Information

  • Great Malvern Priory was started in about 1085 by monks on land owned by Westminster Abbey.
  • Much of the similarity between this and Gloucester Cathedral is caused by the same masons working on both projects at the same time between 1350-1400.
  • Unusually Great Malvern Priory contains only one transept, the south one was never built because of existing buildings - an unusual situation as demolitions were usually carried out on surrounding buildings to enable churches to enlarge.
  • The Priory was saved from the ravages of the reformation when it was bought by locals who used it as a parish church from 1539 until today.
