Welcome to Peopleton Parish Council

The name Peopleton was originally "Piplinogtune" meaning "Pyppel's farmstead (or estate)".
Peopleton is located about 7 miles (11 km) south east of Worcester and 3 miles (5 km) north of Pershore. The parish is bounded by Bow Brook to the west, Piddle Brook to the east and the A44 to the south.[2]
The parish is bounded by the parishes of White Ladies Aston, Upton Snodsbury, Naunton Beauchamp, Throckmorton, Pinvin, Drakes Broughton & Wadborough and Stoulton.
Peopleton is in the Upton Snodsbury electoral ward.
The village church is dedicated to Saint Nicholas in the Anglican Diocese of Worcester. It dates from the 13th Century with modifications in the 14th and 19th Centuries.
Opposite the church in the centre of the village lies the Crown Inn public house.
In December 2010 the long established village shop and post office became a community shop with a legal structure based on the Plunkett model rules.[3] In February 2011 it was featured on an edition of the BBC Countryfile programme focusing on Worcestershire. A tea room was opened during celebrations of the first anniversary of the community shop in December 2011.
The village hall & playing fields are on the northern edge of the village.
The village school is now Bowbrook House School, an independent day school.
To the north of Peopleton the track to White Ladies Aston fords Bow Brook at Barrels Bridge.
After the extensive floods in 2007 when a quarter of the houses in Peopleton were flooded, Peopleton Parish Council raised money for a drainage system to reduce the effects of any future flooding.
A bus service operated by N.N. Cresswell links Peopleton to Upton Snodsbury, Pershore, and Drakes Broughton.
Pershore railway station is the closest passenger railway station.
