Thrupp Parish Newsletter

The roughly circular parish of Thrupp encompasses the villages of Thrupp and Brimscombe and the hamlets of Upper and Lower Bourne, Lypiatt, Quarhouse, the Heavens and Claypits.

The villages of Thrupp and Brimscombe straddle the Thames and Severn canal, the River Frome and the A419.

There is no church within the Parish.

The Parish is divided ecclesiastically between the Parishes of the Holy Trinity, Stroud, Holy Trinity, Brimscombe, and Christ Church, Chalford.

The congregation from the old Mission Chapel worship regularly at the Social Centre.

A bus runs every Sunday for worshippers at Holy Trinity, Stroud and the Roman Catholic Church at Beeches Green.

The Methodists worship at their chapel in Brimscombe Hill and the Brimscombe Parish Church is situated in the same locality. Other Church of England members worship at Christ Church, Chalford.

The Great Western Railway line bounds the parish on the western side.

The boundary then follows the Toadsmoor road in the East, cutting across farmland to Lypiatt and down to Claypits and crosses the canal to the railway line.
