VISITORS to Little Malvern Court, which opens for the 2018 season on Wednesday, April 18, will see a new rose arbour in the grounds of the stately home.

The new arbour was hand made out of oak by local craftsman James Cooper.

Little Malvern Court has been the home of the Berington family since the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1530s.

The 14th century building is surrounded by ten 10 acres of gardens, including a giant lime tree still standing for over 250 years.
