The delightful, half-timbered Salwarpe Court dates back to the 1400s. However, part of the rear of the property was sliced off by the construction of the Droitwich Canal.

The 19th century Worcestershire writer John Noakes reported that on particularly dark nights the ghost of a former owner was said to glide down to the embankment then suicidally commit himself to the waters below (if it’s actually possible for a ghost to kill itself).

You can admire the front of Salwarpe Court from a public footpath that runs from the small church car park through its land.
