Salford Priors Parish Council and Community Website


As you are aware, work has started on the new Play Equipment installation on the playing fields. The contractors have asked to work right through the Bank Holiday weekend to take advantage of the (expected!) good weather. We are told that Friday and Saturday will be preparation works where there may be some noise generated, but Sunday and Monday they will start construction and assembly of some of the equipment, so there should be little noise. We ask for your co-operation on this as, obviously, the more work they can get done the quicker the equipment will be operational. Should there be excessive noise, you can ring the following mobile number and we will address the situation as soon as we can. 07941 979188 Thanks for your understanding and help in advance.

Salford Hall

Welcome to Salford Priors. We are situated in the south west corner of the county of Warwickshire in England, almost as far from the coast as you can get.

The parish comprises seven main settlements: Abbot's Salford, The Bevingtons, Dunnington, Iron Cross, Pitchill, Rushford and Salford Priors. The largest of these settlements is Salford Priors.

The parish is situated almost midway between the towns of Evesham, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Redditch. The settlements are situated in open farmland where the main crops are vegetables, in particular asparagus and salad onions.

There are several Grade II listed buildings located mainly in the conservation area along Evesham Road and Station Road in Salford Priors. There are others in the parish at Pitchill, Dunnington Farmhouse, Wood Bevington Manor and Cock Bevington Farm House. St Matthew's Church in Salford Priors, originally Anglo Saxon, and Salford Hall in Abbots Salford, once a Jacobean nunnery, now a hotel and conference centre, are both Grade I listed buildings.

The parish comprises about 600 properties housing, some 1,240 adult residents and about 270 children. Many families have lived in the parish for several generations.

For visitors, in addition to the Church and listed buildings, a major attraction is the network of footpaths which traverse the parish and enable walkers to really 'get away from it all'! The Parish Council publishes a booklet showing the paths and this can be obtained on request from the Clerk.
