Welcome to Wedderburn Road!

This road cannot boast of any famous event or personality. It is just one of many ordinary streets that nestle under the glorious Malvern Hills. And yet…… this special community in Wedderburn Road is bursting with stories and news that should be told and shared…….

The Window on Wedderburn website contains lots of information on the history of the road and also community news and useful information. It has been created by volunteers as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations held in the road.

Wedderburn Road History

With the first houses built in 1901, the history of the road spans the 20th century and beyond. The information on our First World War heros will attract much wider interest. Likewise the changes experienced by the residents of Wedderburn Road and Malvern in the Second World War provide some fascinating insights into how civilians responded to national crises with good will and humour. Living conditions fifty or one hundred years ago were never squalid but they were basic.  Households relied much more on garden produce and domestic animals such as pigs and hens.  The more prominent role of the local shop as well as daily deliveries of milk, bread and groceries also offer an interesting comparison with life today. These and so many more recollections of life as it was in Wedderburn Road can be found here.

We hope you enjoy exploring our road.
