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.

Japanese Knotweed

Prevent the spread of Japanese knotweed You must prevent Japanese knotweed on your land spreading into the wild. Soil or plant material contaminated with non-native and invasive plants like Japanese knotweed can cause ecological damage and may be classified as controlled waste. You do not have to remove Japanese knotweed from your land, but you could be prosecuted or given a community protection notice for causing a nuisance if you allow it to spread onto anyone else’s property. Many non-native plants cannot be composted because: • they’re usually persistent • they’ll survive the composting process • they usually infest areas where the compost is used For further information on handling and disposing of Japanese knotweed safely and legally, please contact the Environment Agency: National Customer Contact Centre, PO Box 544, Rotherham, S60 1BY Email enquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk Telephone 03708 506 506 And see the following link for further information: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/prevent-japanese-knotweed-from-spreading If you see Japanese Knotweed anywhere in the parish, please also let the Parish Council know, we will then inform Worcestershire Council Highways.
