Welcome to the website for the administrative parish of 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, Cock Bevington, Bevington Waste, Wood Bevington, 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. There is some industry with aggregates company CEMEX operating a large gravel pit and an engineering company Alamo manufacturing agricultural and similar equipment.
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 1240 adult residents and about 270 children. Many families have lived in the parish for several generations.
