Greyfriars House and Garden, Paperback / softback Book

Greyfriars House and Garden Paperback / softback

Description

This timber-framed medieval manor has been lived in Royalists and entrepreneurial refugees.

It has been the site of a pub and grocery shops and ten blind-back houses known as Georges Yard.

But despite its long and varied history, Greyfriars almost didnt make it to today.

In the mid-20th century, many of Worcesters historical buildings were demolished.

If it wasnt for a determined group of locals, Greyfriars and the surrounding Friar Street shops may have been among them.

Instead, thanks to that group, this 600-year-old manor survives to offer an insight into Worcesters medieval past.

But most of all, it paints a picture of the two siblings who saved, conserved and lived here, Elsie and Matley Moore.

Remaining as they left it, Greyfriars is, above all, a welcoming family home and peaceful retreat from the hubbub of the city.
