About the Book
Excerpt from Some of the Antiquities of Moche Malverne (Great Malvern) For thirtyfive years I have lived under the shadow of the Priory Church of Great Malvern, and have taken the greatest possible interest in the building. Its walls, buttresses, and tower, hoar with age, have had a constant fascination for me. To pace slowly round the churchyard, at different seasons of the year, at early morning, or late 'at night, has been my delight. The church's Old stones have become, to me, familiar friends. I have entered the sacred place, and with no one near. Have marked its every feature. In hours snatched from a busy life, I have taken my field glass and peered into the mazes Of its many coloured, ancient windows; have permitted my eyes to wander over its tracery, up its lofty shafts, and about its roof. I have tried many times to interpret the designs and intentions of the ancient architects. Whilst so doing I have pondered in deep meditation on what has been revealed to me there, and often paused in wonder.
