Ledbury Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Herefordshire...

An unspoiled market town in the lee of the Malvern Hills, Ledbury provides the visitor with a quintessentially romantic picture of olde England. It was visited by the poets Wordsworth and Browning and was the birthplace of another famous poet, John Masefield (1878-1967). Among its many picturesque charms are St Michael’s Parish Church, with its detached, 200ft spire, the 17th century, timber-framed Market Hall and the Butchers Row House Folk Museum. The town, which hosts a major international poetry festival each July, lies close to the refurbished 19th century Eastnor Castle, which is set in a beautiful park and contains numerous works of art.
