Welcome to Weobley Village

Famed for its attractive timber-framed 'black & white' buildings, our village is considered to be one of the 20 most idyllic villages in Britain. Sitting at the very heart of Herefordshire's lowlands in an area characterised by wide river valleys, we are surrounded by arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills and beautiful orchards.


WHAT’S DŴR MATTER

The matter is – phosphates in the Newbridge Stream which flows into the Arrow which flows to the Lugg and then into the River Wye.

The phosphates come mainly from human and animal waste and fertilizer run -off, from the catchment area of the River Lugg and its tributaries, and are a pollutant threatening the River Wye. This is why two way traffic lights are in place in the Kington Road, Weobley and will be there until February next year allowing construction traffic to exit safely from the proposed £3.3 million 3 stage filtering plant planned by Welsh Water (DŴR  CYMRU), which with the use of reed beds at other locations should reduce the pollution that has held up new planning applications in the area for some considerable time.

Over the past year there have been 63 storm water discharges into the Newbridge brook at Weobley lasting a total of 186 hours 45 minutes according to official figures. We hope this investment and other measures within the catchment area will reduce phosphate pollution and its effects.

This year's annual ArtWeobley exhibition showcases work from local artists at the Village Hall. Come along and admire the creative talent we have locally, and if you see something you like, you might be able to buy it!

                     .... and if you're a budding artist, why not enter some of your work this year.

Repairs at Weobley Parish Church

Work continues on replacing the rotten section of the nave flooring in the Parish Church and it is hoped that this will be completed soon, so sadly the Church remains closed with Sunday services currently being held at the Village Hall.

Thank you to all those in Weobley and beyond who have very kindly donated to our ‘Sponsor-a-Tile’ campaign, with over £11,500 already raised.
