There has been a community recorded here for over 2000 years. The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The Anglo-Saxon meaning of Yarpole (Iarpol or Yarpol) is fish pool or dam for containing fish. The original fish pool has long since been abandoned, the remains of the dam wall are still visible.

Yarpole still retains its red telephone kiosk, its pub, The Bell Inn, and has an award winning community run village shop and Post Office operating from within the Parish Church, St Leonard's. The first full time shop in a church.

The Parish has a population of approximately 700 and comprises of the villages of Bircher and Lucton, the community on Bircher Common and the hamlet of Bicton.WP 20171211 13 44 29 Pro
