Upper Welland
Upper Welland
Viewed from Broad Down on the Malvern Hills.
The village has developed from a triangular piece of common land known as Lower Assart before the Welland Inclosure Act of 1851 handed the land over to established land owners of Welland parish.
The common land started to have houses with large plots of land built on it. These have continuously been infilled over the last 160 years.
The rough land with many evergreen trees is the St Wulstan's Nature Reserve on the site of the hospital built for the expected D-Day casualties in the Second World War.
It later became a very successful rehabilitation mental hospital.
Shuttlefast Farm is near the top of the picture.
