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

Location[edit]

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[edit]

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.
