Lingen, a place of sparkling water, is a Herefordshire village in the wooded hills of the Marches on the border between England and Wales. Situated in the north-west corner of the county it lies just over five miles from the Welsh border. The parish includes the hamlets of Birtley, Limebrook and Willey. 

Lingen village offers not only a Chapel, Church, Public House and Village Hall, but also gives visitors the opportunity to sample stunning countryside walks with truly splendid views.   

'lingenweb' has exhausted its funds!  After running for over 10 years it has more than used up its initial set-up grant, being also previously sponsored for one year by a retired village couple and since then, for a year by its webmaster. 

If the site is to continue, it must now ask for contributions towards its running costs and has already received donations from a local group and resident to this purpose.

If you or your group can help then please Contact Us
