Grafton Flyford is a village in Worcestershire, England.

In 1377, or 1378, Henry de Ardern was granted the manor of Grafton Flyford by the Earl of Warwick for a red rose. Grafton Flyford is a beautiful and peaceful village, consisting mainly of farming families. The Church’s grand architecture is stunning, and the surrounding land is green and healthy. Though not very accessible for larger vehicles, the village is a wonderful place where many people come to walk. The wood lands are home to the rare brown hairstreak butterfly, found in few other places! The hunt is a frequent and much loved event in the village. It neighbours Stock Green, with the large farm house Hill Top Farm standing on the border. A wonderful country village. [1]
