Malvern Editorial 26th Mar, 2024   0

PUPILS from Somers Park School in Malvern found out about the history of the famous ‘Worcestershire Sauce’ when they visited Devenham Care Home.

The 90 children took part in the Charles Dyson Perrins History Walk to visit and learn about the historic building and its beautiful scenic grounds.

Pupils learnt about the building’s famous owner, Charles Dyson Perrins and its history and links to the well-known Lea and Perrins Sauce.

They saw an English Heritage Blue Plaque on Davenham’s Gate dedicated to Charles Dyson Perrins.

Davenham, constructed in 1860 by local builder George McCann, is full of history and intriguing stories.

The house was later called Davenham Bank in 1871.




James and Sarah Dyson Perrins lived at Davenham with their three daughters and son, Charles William Dyson Perrins, who inherited the house when his Father died in 1887.

The link between Davenham and the well-known Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce comes from Charles William Dyson Perrins’ grandson, William Perrins.


He was the co-founder of Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce and owned The Gate House at Davenham.
