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.
