Welcome to the website for Pauntley parish, a small community in an area of beautiful countryside in the north-west of Gloucestershire, about 4 miles from Newent.  To the north-west, we look out to the Malvern Hills, and the prominent landmark of May Hill can be seen to the south-east beyond Newent. Settlement in the parish is largely scattered, apart from the three hamlets in the parish at Ketford, Pool Hill and Brand Green. Although we have no shop or pub, we have a thriving primary school and an active village hall, both of which form focal points for the parish.

Pauntley is well-known as the probable birthplace of Dick Whittington, whose family owned the manor house here, Pauntley Court, at the time of his birth in the 14th century. Adjacent to the Court is the church of St John the Evangelist with its fine Norman south doorway, with a chevron arch and a carved tympanum of the Dymock school.

This website is maintained by the community and aims to provide information about the parish for local residents and visitors.  We would welcome any news, information or photographs for inclusion on the site – please contact us using the Contact Us page.
