Learn about Greyfriars with this informative guidebook.

This timber-framed medieval manor has been lived in Royalists and entrepreneurial refugees. It has been the site of a pub and grocery shops and ten ‘blind-back’ houses known as George’s Yard.

But despite its long and varied history, Greyfriars almost didn’t make it to today. In the mid-20th century, many of Worcester’s historical buildings were demolished. If it wasn’t for a determined group of locals, Greyfriars and the surrounding Friar Street shops may have been among them.

Instead, thanks to that group, this 600-year-old manor survives to offer an insight into Worcester’s medieval past. But most of all, it paints a picture of the two siblings who saved, conserved and lived here, Elsie and Matley Moore. Remaining as they left it, Greyfriars is, above all, a welcoming family home and peaceful retreat from the hubbub of the city.
