Attractions

History

The village of Alvechurch is steeped in history, it dates back to at least 700AD. In 780AD a Christian woman called Aelf-gyth founded a church here and the village’s name is a corruption of Aelf-Gyth Church. 

The Bishop of Worcester had his palace here for several hundred years, and the ruins are still evident.
