The Malvern Link station on the West Midland line of railway is about 1 mile E. from the village. It is situated on the river Severn, at the foot of the Malvern hills, and includes the hamlet of Dripsill, where the manufacture of bricks, drain pipes, &c., is carried on. Two-thirds of the land is in pasture, and the remainder arable and orchards, the latter producing apples and pears in profusion. There are nine hop plantations."
