Welcome to Little Wenlock Parish Council

We are the second highest village in Shropshire at 720 feet above sea level – the main settlement in a rural parish of some 550 people stretching from the western fringe of Telford to The Wrekin hill and the northern rim of the Ironbridge Gorge.

As well as being voted Shropshire Village of the Year in 2005, we went on to win the Western England Environmental Award in the national competition.

With just under 130 houses and a population of around 350, our village is small by local standards. Even though we no longer have a school, post office or village shop, we enjoy a wonderful community based around numerous groups, activities and events involving the vast majority of residents of all ages.

We are an innovative Parish Council – one of the first in the county to earn Quality Status, working to a comprehensive 10-year Parish Plan developed through community-wide consultation to provide a growing range of facilities and services.

The great joy of our village is the tremendous sense of community and belonging we enjoy, with everyone working together with and for each other. It’s something you can’t escape in Little Wenlock, and it remains our single greatest source of pride.
