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.

A villager has made a suggestion about face masks. She thinks we could set up a face mask tree on the tree in The Crews that we put our Xmas dec’s on?

People can just take one - if we put up a donation box maybe add to that for the church? Or (with permission) from chicory crops at their farm shop?

What do you think?

Very glad there were no serious injuriesUpdate on A449 road closure. RTC involving large goods vehicle carrying farm feed and a tractor/trailer carrying potatoes. Walking wounded were treated by West Midlands Ambulance Service. Both drivers had a lucky escape.

Fire crews from Ross and Whitchurch assisted with significant fuel leaks which were prevented from entering drains using environmental grab packs and soil. The road will be closed for some time while they wait for recovery of the vehicles.
