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.
You will find lots of detail about the village on the tabs above including village life, services, schools and local businesses.

Thank you to everyone who took part in today's Remembrance Sunday commemorations. The service was really uplifting. It was wonderful to see so many highly polished medals being worn with pride. The talk by Guy Cooper was excellent and really brought home how many personal family tragedies there were. Jane Ayres played some fantastic, rousing music on the organ and we we welcomed back Tom Newman who gave a poignant rendition of The Last Post and Reveille on his trumpet. The commemorations came to an end with a splendid ringing of the church bells, such a wonderful sound. Thank you to all the bell ringers but especially Fliss and Floss. A, big thank you too, to our church warden Olivia Boon who organised the whole event.
Thank you to everyone who came to the Neighbourhood Development Plan open day at the hall. More than 100 parishioners gave their views on what Upton Bishop should look like in the future.
