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.
