Hope Bagot is a small, pretty village, nestled into the leafy lanes of a south facing valley in the lower reaches of Clee Hill. It boasts, on a pre-Christian site, a fine Norman Church, St John the Baptist's, complete with an ancient yew tree and holy well, and a period retro Village Hall. There is a choice of holiday accommodation in the village (B&Bs and self catering) contactable through the various commercial websites.

The community organises a popular annual Fete and Dog Show at the end of May with an array of stalls and tea and home baked cakes to tempt people for a pleasant afternoon.

Hope Bagot is a great centre for walking with glorious views as far as Malvern Hills and Hay Bluff, with the area criss-crossed by a myriad footpaths and bridleways, many of them former routes for workers at Clee Hill or the then nearby brick works. A local footpath map is on sale inside the church.

We have a physical parish noticeboard as well as a electronic quarterly newsletter - if you would like to receive a copy via email please contact [email protected] - the latest Newsletter is attached below.
