Until 2007 it was the residence of the Bishop of Worcester, with two-thirds of the building leased out to Worcestershire County Council as the Worcestershire County Museum. Hartlebury Castle is a Grade I listed building. It is about a mile to the west of the village and half a mile to the west of the church.Queen Elizabeth I Grammar SchoolHartlebury was formerly the location of Queen Elizabeth I Grammar School. Records of the school date back to a mention in the Domesday Book of William the Conqueror in 1066, but apart from that, other early accounts date back to 1400, centuries before Eton, Harrow and Rugby were founded. The school was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1557. Originally a private boys school, it was taken over by the State, and was closed when it was merged in 1977 with King Charles I Grammar School, Kidderminster, and The Kidderminster Girls High School to form King Charles I School. The historic old school was sold off to become a private residence. The magnificent new building, with its commanding views over the countryside, was narrowly rescued from demolition by the Old Boys Association.Make Hartlebury central to your United Kingdom (UK) travel plans using our United Kingdom (UK) holiday planner.
