Bishop Monkton Village

Visitors and residents will find in Bishop Monkton a vibrant, active community.  Clubs and societies for all ages and interests abound, together with annual village events and sporting fixtures - often centering around the modern and spacious village hall.  Along with St. John the Baptist, the Church of England church, there is also a Methodist church in the village, an excellent primary school and two village pubs.  Worship has taken place in our picturesque village probably for more than a millennium and both village and church life are lively and flourishing. We hope you will visit us soon, a warm welcome awaits.

Enjoy looking through the photos below to get a taste of village life and we also have a brilliant village website called "Bishop Monkton Today" which you can access here:
