The rarest piece

Royal Worcester vases

A "Patience" teapot

Great Malvern


The narrow streets of Ledbury

The sun was shining but it was still bitterly cold so we decided to head to Worcester and then the Malvern Hills. It was an ideal day for either a museum or a car touring day without being out too much in the cold.

Our first stop was the Worcester Porcelain Museum. This told the story of Royal Worcester one of the largest porcelain factories in England which had been in production for 150 years. However they no longer made "pot" as Tony's Grandmother used to call it in Worcester. It was an interesting museum with some stunning examples of the ornate pottery that made Royal Worcester popular.

From Worcester we went to the small town of Great Malvern which clings to the side of the Malvern hills but after a short walk around the town we decided the cold was too much so we returned to the car and headed on.

Our final stop on our way back to the campground was Ledbury. The town has many pretty black and white buildings along narrow back streets, the original layout going back to Norman times. It also had the Market House a Tudor beamed building raised on oak columns

A fine end to the day.
