About Us

Upton Bishop is a village with 600 residents in South Herefordshire, just outside Ross on Wye.  We are a vibrant village with a very popular pub, The Moody Cow; a large village hall which is used by many different groups for all types of activities, and a beautiful church.  We are also home to the renowned Wobage craft centre.

Upton Bishop consists of six settlements, Crow Hill, Phocle Green, Tanhouse, Tedgewood, Upton Bishop, and Upton Crews.The village of Upton Bishop is recorded in the Domesday Book within the Bromsash Hundred as Upton Episcopi, owned by the Canons of Hereford i.e. the Bishop’s Upper Town. The record includes seven Hides paying tax; in Lordship two ploughs: eighteen villagers, eleven smallholders, two Boors and a priest. The inclusion of a priest in the record suggests a settled population and the possible existence of a place of worship at that time.

The weather couldn't dampen our spirits at yesterday's fete. The garden at Beeches was a magnificent setting and young and old played games, sampled cakes and icecreams and were serenaded by the village handbell group. A huge thank you to John and Karin for hosting and to Olivia for organising and to all the other volunteers who manned the stalls, made the teas and helped clear up. If anyone took photos during the afternoon please post them here.

Summer fete today at 2.30pm at Beeches (on the road to the church opposite Chicory Crops. Traditional games, competitions for flowers and cakes, produce stall, icecreams and paper boat endurance races.
