Whitbourne: St John the Baptist, Whitbourne
Boat Lane Whitbourne, WR6 5RS

Whitbourne itself is just one of a group of six former parishes which make up the Parish of Greater Whitbourne. There are four churches still in use and lovingly cared for, but the one at Wolferlow has now been made redundant.

The parish is situated in beautiful countryside in the North East of the County of Herefordshire. Bounded on the East by the River Teme and on the South by Bringsty Common, the western part consists of sparsely populated farmland, while Whitbourne itself is a large village, many of whose inhabitants are connected with farming, and some of whom work in Worcester or Birmingham.
