Many activities take place at the village hall – for full details go to the village hall page

Two pubs lie on the outskirts of the village – the Coal House on the banks of the River Severn and the Farmers Arms at Lower Apperley.

A great many well kept footpaths pass through Apperley and Lower Apperley. There are excellent views of the Cotswolds, the Malvern Hills and Bredon Hill from many parts of the village. There is a large car park at Apperley Village Hall, from where it is possible to follow footpaths across the fields to Deerhurst and the River Severn.

Apperley Green – the war memorial

The Apperley war memorial is situated on the village green, close to the pond known historically as the Sandpool.  The war memorial honours the men of Deerhurst parish who gave their lives whilst fighting for their country during the World Wars.
