SO7741 : Assarts, Malvern Wells

taken 6 years ago, near to Little Malvern, Worcestershire, Great Britain

Assarts,  Malvern Wells
Assarts, Malvern Wells
The area gets its name, Assarts, from the medieval clearance of a section of the Chase (hunting ground) under licence.
On the 1841 Welland Tithe Map it is marked as Upper Assart Common.
A decade later the Welland Inclosure Act allowed the common land to be exploited and it has slowly been consumed by housing developments.
The Assarts playing field (top right) remains open for recreational use, though a corner has been fenced off for the Scout hut.
Above that (towards the camera) there are three post war developments:-
Heathlands Close, council houses,
Wells Close, built by the Co-op I'm told,
Woodlands Close, private detached built in the late 1970s.
On the left of the photo the recent Homestead Close has been built in what was the garden of the large house "Heathlands".
At the very bottom of the photo is the rather ornate Malvern Wells C of E primary school on the main A449 Wells Road.
