Friends of St Marys

The Friends of St Mary's is a fund raising organisation who not only preserve St. Mary's Church but to help to build on the legacy by reinterpreting and remodeling where appropriate.

The Friends of St Mary's is a secular organisation, independent from the church and its council and all monies raised by the Friends comes from regular giving and from fund raising events. It is the aim of the Friends of St Mary’s not only to preserve the Church but to build on its legacy by reinterpreting and remodeling, where appropriate, to provide for Ross in the 21st Century a building that is once more appropriate for our time but which also retains the best of the past.

This is important, challenging and costly work which needs to involve the whole local community.

Upton Bishop Parish

Upton Bishop Parish is located in the South Eastern corner of Herefordshire near Ross-on-Wye, close to the M50 and A40. The parish embraces the settlements of Crow Hill, Phocle Green, Tanhouse, Tedgewood, Upton Bishop, and Upton Crews.

The village of Upton Bishop is recorded in the Domesday Book within the Bromsash Hundred as Upton Episcopi, owned by the Canons of Hereford i.e. the Bishop's Upper Town. The record includes seven Hides paying tax; in Lordship two ploughs: eighteen villagers, eleven smallholders, two Boors and a priest. The inclusion of a priest in the record suggests a settled population and the possible existence of a place of worship at that time.
