Bransford is a village and civil parish (with Leigh) in the Malvern Hills District in the county of Worcestershire, England.

Until 1965 there was a GWR station on the Bransford Road

Following the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834 Bransford Parish ceased to be responsible for maintaining the poor in its parish. This responsibility was transferred to Martley Poor Law Union.[1]
