Salford Priors Parish Council and Community Website

Speed Awareness Group

The Parish Council receive regular complaints regarding speeding motorists around the parish.

There are currently 4 speed awareness trained volunteers but they are desperately looking for new recruits.

To run a session there must be 3 people in attendance at any one time - one to operate the speed gun, one to note the data and one to ensure health and safety is being adhered to. Training is not required for the data entry or the health and safety volunteers.

If you can spare some time to help with this it would be much appreciated. With more people involved it will make it easier to arrange dates for the speed awareness session to operate.

If you can spare some time, during the day, evenings or weekends please contact the Clerk.

Many thanks.

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.
