Priory Church of St Mary and St Michael, Church Street, Malvern - Malvern Hills

Large monastic medieval church of the Benedictine Priory, founded in 1085, it is now a large parish church that dominates the centre of Malvern. It has the largest display of C15 stained glass in England as well as rich furnishings and finishes. Overall in fair condition but there is a major problem with the stained glass which needs urgent repair. Other problems are the high level stonework of the tower and the high level masonry of the windows on the south side.
