English Bicknor is a village in Gloucestershire, England. It lies in the Forest of Dean close to the county border with Herefordshire. The village sits north of Coleford, south east of Symonds Yat, north east of Monmouth and south west of Ruardeen. Nearby towns and villages include, Berry Hill, Upper Lydbrook, Lower Lydbrook and Great Doward.
The village lies near the River Wye, which flows from its source on the slopes of Plynlimon in Mid Wales to Chepstow where it enters the Severn Estuary. It is said that the Wye Valley offers some of Britain's most attractive and varied countryside and the landscape of English Bicknor is no exception.
The parish church, a grade 1 listed Norman church dating back to 1100, is dedicated to St Mary. The church stands in an oval churchyard of Saxon origins. The area is actually the courtyard of a Norman motte and bailey castle which was destroyed in the 14th century.
The church treasures include a number of fine stone carvings, similar to the more famous carvings on Kilpeck Church, and three stone effigies dating from the 13th Century.
