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.

Cider, Perry, Lager and Blotto have been walking round part of Upton Bishop, taking photos of themselves as they go.

Unfortunately, they often get distracted and then they get lost.

Look at the 12 pictures they have taken: can you identify where in the village they are?

The Great Upton Bishop Bake Off – for everyone who likes making and eating cakes

We’ve been inundated with requests for a second round of the Great Upton Bishop bake-off.

We’ve had offers of more cakes from bakers and requests for cakes including a ‘proper’ battenberg with real almond paste.

The second round will work exactly the same as before.

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.

A full list of the cakes will be on the website and published on Facebook. Cakes can be reserved by commenting on our Facebook posts or through the comment form on the website or by emailing claireaustin1@hotmail.com or phoning 01989 780534.

Buyers will be put in contact with bakers to arrange collection. If anyone is shielding and is unable to collect we can help out.
The cake sale will run for a number of weeks so you can make or buy more than one. We are also accepting donations of jam, marmalade and other produce.

Each cake or pot of jam will come with a suggested minimum donation price. Donations to be made if possible via BACS to:

Upton Bishop PCC, Sort code 30-90-89, account no 37440160.

If you are unable to bank online cash, or cheques made out to Upton Bishop PCC, can be placed in a sealed envelope and posted through Peter Fanshaw’s door at Melrose, The Crews, HR9 7UF.

Andrew Cotter's running commentaries on his two dogs, Olive and Mabel have lifted the spirits of all those who have watched them and we wondered if the residents of Upton Bishop could do even better.

Just film your pet(s) in action with a commentary and post it here on Facebook.
