Alfrick Pound

Alfrick Pound

Alfrick Pound is a small village in the county of Worcestershire, England, in the United Kingdom.

Location

Alfrick Pound village is located on the edge of the Malvern Hills area, approximately ten miles west of Worcester near the Suckley Hills and is set in a very rural area.

History and amenities

It has a very small population of residents and a small number of properties. History tells us that the Alfrick Pound was once an area where stray livestock were held in a pound until the owner was traced or turned up to reclaim them, incurring a small fine in order to do so.

The houses that stand are half-timbered cottages, an old pub, a small village school and even a small police house. None of these are still used for their original purpose and have been modernised and made into private residences though still revealing their old architecture.
