(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..

Pictures of Red Telephone Kiosk

British Telecom informed the Parish Council in 2016 that following a Public consultation the Public Telephone and its type "K6" Kiosk situated on Kilpeck Village Green were going to be disconnected due to lack of use. 

In 2017 The Parish Council were given the option of a conditional purchase for a nominal £1.00 fee. Several options for use were considered with the final agreement being to refurbish the kiosk, which you will see from Photograph No1 was in a sorry state. The Kiosk was stripped back to bare metal replacing all parts as required followed by a repaint.

Thanks to grant funding from The Big Lottery Fund a Public Defibrillator was purchased and installed.
