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.

Dogs, footpaths and the law

The Parish Council have received a large number of complaints regarding all aspects of dog walking and public footpaths in our Parish. We are asking everyone to read the below so that they may refresh their understanding of legislation:

LANDOWNERS As the owner or occupier of land with a public right of way across it, you must keep the route visible and not obstruct or endanger users. You are responsible for the maintenance and repair of styles/gates etc, you may get some financial/equipment support from Malvern Council. As the landowner, you can be prosecuted if you keep any potentially dangerous animal on land crossed by a public right of way. This includes landowners dogs, and some other dangerous farm animals. Your own animals must be under control on the footpath as this is a public right of way.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC This public right of way is meant for pedestrians only. You are allowed to walk your dog as long as it is under your close control. When walking a dog, you must ensure that it keeps to the public footpath and does not trespass into nearby properties or further afield on the land. A public footpath is 1 metre wide, you and your dog can only use the 1 metre wide path. Dogs must be either walk to heel or on a lead . Prams, pushchair or wheelchairs can also be used on a footpath within the 1 metre. Dog owners walking on either public footpaths or the road or pavements within the parish must at all times pick up any dog droppings. They must at all times carry at least two bags to pick up dog droppings. Anyone failing to pick up or carry bags is committing an offence which is punishable with a large fine. Due to the amount of complaints recently received by the council, Malvern will be deploying their patrol wardens in our parish, so checks will be carried out.
