Welcome to the Upton Magna Website
Upton Magna is situated some five miles from Shrewsbury and approximately ten miles from Telford in a picturesque and historic village.
The Village Hall runs events throughout the year including films, bingo, gigs and quizzes.
With evidence of Anglo Saxon occupation, seen in the architecture of the Parish Church dedicated to St Lucia, the village is recorded in the Domesday Book and has several black and white timber framed houses, one of which, Cruck Cottage, is reputedly the oldest in England.
The first Village Hall building was of timber construction and was destroyed by fire when a wedding breakfast had been prepared and left unattended. A new hall was erected in 1928 with funds from the Sundorne Estate and as a memorial to those in the village who were killed in the 1914 – 18 war.
The hall has now been completely refurbished to meet current regulations and standards with help from the National Lottery Community Fund. It now provides a high quality venue for a wide range of uses at most competitive rates and is well used by the community on a weekly basis for a range of activities and events.
An Entertainment Licence has been granted by Shrewsbury & Atcham Borough Council for up to 150 people extending to 11.30pm. The Village Hall has a licensed bar that can be booked for functions.
The accommodation is on one floor and has disabled access from our car park.
