Welcome to Knighton on Teme Parish Council

Knighton on Teme parish stands in 2593 acres of beautiful countryside at the foot of the Clee Hills. It has a population of around 500 inhabitants and almost 200 houses.
It has an extremely well kept parish room and a frequently used cricket pitch where league matches are played.
Unfortunately it has lost its two Inns and the village school which closed in 1983. Also gone is the railway station at Newnham Bridge which opened in 1864 and closed on 31st July 1962 after a span of 98 years. One public house has since reopened.
The church of St Michael and All Angels is a Grade I listed building and is kept in good condition. It is Norman Romanesque. Although the dedication is medieval there has been a church building on the site from Saxon times. Domesday Book records that there was a priest here in 1086.
There is a very ancient medieval preaching cross in the churchyard, and also a yew tree probably dating from the time of Edward I who ordered them to be planted as a protection against high winds.

Notice to dog owners

Polite notice to dog owners/walkers using public footpaths in Knighton on Teme parish For the safety and wellbeing of all concerned, we would be grateful for your cooperation with the following request: If livestock are in the fields as you enter a public right of way/footpath, please consider keeping your dog under close control along the footpath - either on a fixed lead, walking to heel or with reliable recall. All public footpaths are 1metre wide. People are also reminded that gates should be left as they are found. Loose dogs amongst livestock (cattle, sheep, goats, swine, horses and poultry) causes great stress to animals, DEFRA say “The main countryside rule is – Dogs must never worry livestock. Under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 the owner, and anyone else under whose control the dog is at the time will be guilty of an offence if it worries livestock on agricultural land” If your dog or indeed any animal under your control injures a person or animal or damages property, the owner or person responsible may be liable for damages. This would be a civil claim and not necessarily a criminal offence. Thank you Knighton on Teme Parish Council Contact – Clerk 01584 810817 / kd.yates@virgin.net
