Interior, Little Malvern Priory
Grade I listed.
First mentioned in 1125, the present Priory is the choir of the original monastic church, the rest went before the reformation.
The present church occupies the crossing tower and chancel of the priory church. Ruined north and south transepts and chapels also remain. The church is entered through a porch to the west of the tower.
The original restoration was in 1482 by Bishop Alcock, who found the church "in great ruin" and the monks and Prior were sent to Gloucester Abbey under correction for 2 years.

The nave has a window with a fragment of 14th Century glass, and there is a 14th C screen and table tomb with four weepers.
There are some monk's stalls with misericords in the chancel.
The east window has 15th C. glass installed by Bishop Alcock, and depicts the family of Edward IV, including Prince Edward, one of the Princes in the tower.
William Langland, the 14th C. poet was educated here.

There is a small Hill organ from the 19th C.
