Our Village

Monks Kirby, set in a shallow valley and comprising of 188 dwellings, has a history that goes back to the 7th century. St Edith’s church, a grade I listed building, was founded in the 11th century and dominates the landscape of the village, There is a nationally famous ring of 8 bells and bell ringing has long been a feature of the church. The village is a designated village conservation area; many of the houses in the village are over 100 years old and there is sympathetic new development interspersed. There is an excellent primary school and a well attended Catholic church both of which serve a wide catchment area. We are blessed with a popular public house (Denbigh Arms) and a well supported and maintained village hall.

January 2019. Joan Davenport, a well respected member of Monks Kirby Parish Council died in January after a long illness. Joan had lived (with husband John) in Monks Kirby since the mid 1960's and had a wealth of knowledge  on matters of community interest. Joan was dedicated to supporting the community via Neighborhood Watch, the Parish Council and day to day personal interactions. She will be very much missed.
