Malvern Wells War Memorial
The design by Mr. C. F. A. Voysey depicts a column of Portland Stone supporting a pelican feeding her young with her blood.
Malvern Wells used to be in the Parish of Hanley Castle which stretched from the ridge of the Malvern Hills to the River Severn.
The Lechmere family who have lived in Hanley Castle for centuries have the pelican on their coat of arms with the motto Christus Pelicano (Christ is like the pelican).
