Some history of Malvern
More information on Malvern to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Malvern from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Malvern. There is information on Worcestershire dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.

"At Worcester, today, Alfred Bickerstaffe, Broadheath, was charged on remand with attempting to commit suicide. Prisoner was seen lying on
the railway with his neck on one rail and his feet on another, and with great difficulty John Phillips dragged him away just before a train from Worcester to Malvern
passed. He was drunk and so exceedingly violent that he had to be manacled with his hands behind him, and have his boots cut off. He declared, "It was all the old
woman's fault." Now he said he was upset at his wife running him into debt, but was sorry for making the attempt. He had told the police he should make another
attempt when released. In consideration of this the Bench committed him for trial at the Assizes, and commended Phillips for his courageous conduct."
