Malvern: Enjoy spa town tranquility

Malvern: Enjoy spa town tranquility

Spa towns have a certain charm to them, carried all the way through from their original roots. Destinations such as Harrogate in North Yorkshire and Malvern in Worcestershire are two excellent examples of this, offering a quiet way of life to their residents.

With property for sale in Malvern you will be able to enjoy a town which was founded in the 11th century when Benedictine monks built a priory in the Malvern Hills.

It was during the 19th century that word spread and Malvern developed from a village into a sprawling conurbation as people came from far and wide for its hydrotherapy spa, which was made possible because of its spring waters.

Since then it has moved on considerably and has developed into a modern town, with pretty much all the amenities required by families. The town centre is made up of two main streets which run at right angles, comprising shops, supermarkets, craft shops and estate agents among others.

Research and development in the fields of physics and electronics provides many employment opportunities in Malvern, while the manufacturing and services industry is represented with businesses based at the Spring Lane Industrial Estate.

Agriculture is another theme which runs through Malvern, with the Three Counties Showground being the home of the Three Counties Show every year, along with other horticultural and gardening events.

There are a number of primary schools in and around Malvern, while specialist colleges exist in the shape of Hanley Castle High School and The Chase Technology College. Perhaps Malvern's most recognised educational establishment is Malvern College, a co-educational public school which was founded back in 1865.

There is plenty going on in the spa town, from the Manor Park Club multi-sports complex to Malvern Town FC and Barnards Green Cricket Club for sports fans, while there are also attractions based around music, art and drama.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801579076-ADNFCR
