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.

To use either open the what3words app and tap the current location arrow.
Or enter a street address into the search bar on what3words, zoom in for the precise location, switch to satellite view, note the 3 words address which will update as you position the map.

Street Lighting, Feb 2020 - the Parish Council is investigating the possibility of replacing the existing conventional streetlights with LED lanterns. It is hoped that this can be funded with 5 year loan which will be paid off with the energy savings made by transferring to LED lighting - this is a very popular scheme at the moment and you may notice several other local villages have converted to LED lighting. There will not be any increases in the precept as a result of this scheme. Any thoughts on this topic, please contact one of the parish councilors
