Little Malvern is a retired romantic spot, lying on the east side of the hill, and running up to its summit, where is a supposed Roman camp, with a treble ditch. Within a musket-shot of the trenches of the camp, in the parish of Colwal, in Herefordshire, was found, in 1650, a coronet or bracelet of gold, set with precious stones, by one Taylor, as he was digging, who sold it to a goldsmith at Gloucester for 37l the goldsmith sold it to a jeweller in London for 250l and afterwards the jeweller sold the stones for 1500l. Among some paintings in the church is that of Edward IV.
