(Welcome to Kilpeck Parish Council’s Website)


Kilpeck Church is described as ‘one of the most perfect Norman village churches in England In c.850 a charter records the gift of the Church with a surrounding estate to Bishop Crecielis; The graveyard was originally rounded denoting an even older religious site. It was evidently an important and ancient site. The present building, in red sandstone, is a typical lay-out of nave, chancel and apse of c.1134-1145, though it may incorporate some Saxon masonry. The builder was Hugh de Kilpeck. The Church’s glory is the wealth of decoration, originally painted and is the prime surviving example of the Herefordshire School of Sculpture. Much of it seems to have been produced about the time the church was given to the Benedictine Abbey of Gloucester in 1143; a priory of this Abbey was nearby. The sculptures on the south doorway, chancel arch and west window are magnificent. The eighty-five corbels, include a ‘sheela-na-gig’, probably a fertility symbol. The massive font, is Norman or earlier, the gallery c.17th century. The church stands between the remains of Kilpeck Castle and the six acre deserted medieval village whose main road still serves as an access road to the church..

Community Governance Review

The Community Governance Reviews for Kilpeck Group Parish has been approved by full Council. The full report tabled at, and the audio recording made of, the full Council meeting where the CGRs were discussed can be found here (item no. 9)à http://councillors.herefordshire.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=291&MId=6540&Ver=4

We have produced a parish order to enable these changes to take place; in summary, the process will now allow for the dissolving and abolition of all five existing group parish members and the creation of a new parish which will be call ‘Kilpeck Parish’. These changes will be coming in to force in April 2019. This change will not make any direct changes to the number of parish councillors as we have specified in the order that the new parish council shall retain nine parish council seats. The key change will be administrative whereby the five existing parishes shall cease to exist – being succeeded by the new parish of Kilpeck.
