Stowe or Stow is a small village and civil parish in south Shropshire, England.

The parish has a border with Wales and the Welsh town of Knighton is less than two miles to the southwest of the village; a very small part of the town (including Knighton station) actually lies within Stowe parish and Shropshire. The population of the civil ward at the 2011 census was 140.[1]

Also nearby is the Salopian village of Bucknell and the Welsh hamlet of Milebrook.

The A488 and A4113 roads pass nearby.

Parish meeting[edit]

Instead of a parish council it has a parish meeting;[2] this is due to the very small population of the parish. The parish is represented by an elected chairman, these have been
