Baschurch Parish Council
Welcome to the Baschurch Parish Council website.
Baschurch Parish Council covers an area which includes the villages of Baschurch and Weston Lullingfields together with a number of rural hamlets located about ten miles north west of the County town of Shrewsbury.
Baschurch was mentioned in the Domesday book as Bascherche and simply means the Church of Bassa. Bassa was a Saxon chief and is believed by many that as early as the 6th century this church was here and that this is the place the British Poet Llywarc wrote about 14 centuries ago when he recorded a battle against the invading Saxons. It is believed the battle took place a mile or so north of the village of Baschurch where stands the ancient fortress now known as The Berth. More recently this site has been suggested as being the resting place of King Arthur.
