Hanley Swan is a small village in the English county of Worcestershire. It lies in the Malvern Hills district, between the towns of Malvern 2 miles away, and Upton-upon-Severn. Together with the nearby village of Hanley Castle, its population is about 1500. The very traditional English village centre includes a village green and pond, a pub, and village stores. Hanley Swan won the 2009 Calor Herefordshire and Worcestershire Village of the Year competition, a heat of the national Village of the year competition. Hanley Swan was an inspiration for the setting in the novel Black Swan Green by David Mitchell.[1]
