Knightwick is a small village and civil parish (with Doddenham) in the Malvern Hills district in the county of Worcestershire, England.

Following the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834 Knightwick Parish ceased to be responsible for maintaining the poor in its parish. This responsibility was transferred to Martley Poor Law Union.[1]

Previously served by the now closed Worcester, Bromyard and Leominster Railway.
