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. This website is owned and maintained by Upton Bishop Parish Council.

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 Great Upton Bishop Bake Off is coming back for Christmas. Starting on November 1st we will have a range of cakes and preserves for sale.

To take part you just need to tell us what cake (or cakes) you would like to make and/or buy and we will match bakers with buyers. You can make a big fancy cake, cup cakes, a tray bake or savoury bites. But don’t make them until we have identified a buyer. For Christmas you might want to pledge a chocolate log, mince pies or even a fruit cake which the buyer could ice ready for the festive season.

We have already had pledges of a lemon drizzle, a Victoria sponge and fruit cakes and we know there are lots of bakers in the village just itching to make gorgeous creations. If you can make a cake or cakes please comment below or contact Jane Fray on 780383.
We are also accepting donations of jam, marmalade, mincemeat and other produce.
