Welcome to Malvern Wells Parish Council

Malvern Wells is a village and civil parish in the Malvern Hills District of Worcestershire, England. The parish of Malvern Wells, once known as South Malvern, was formed in 1894 from parts of the civil parishes of Hanley Castle, Welland, and the former parish of Great Malvern, and owes its development to Malvern's 19th century boom years as a spa town.
It lies on the eastern slopes of the Malvern Hills south of Great Malvern (the town centre of Malvern) and takes its name from the Malvern water issuing from springs on the hills, principally from the Holy Well and the Eye Well.[1] lIts northern end also includes the Wyche Cutting, the historic salt route pass through the hills forming the border between the counties of Herefordshire on the western side of the Malvern Hills at the village of Upper Colwall and the Worcestershire side in the east. The actual cutting through the granite hill face is at a height of 856 feet above sea level.
In 1558 Queen Elizabeth I granted the land to John Hornyold, lord of the manor, under the premise that any pilgrim or traveller should be able to draw rest and refreshment from the Holy Well. This covenant still stands today. 1622 is the first record of spring water ever being bottled in the UK]. This took place at the Holy Well which later became the site where Malvern Water was first drawn for sale by the Schweppes Company at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
