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.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION - should our parish council buy Speed Indicator Devices (SIDS)?

Before BGPC can go ahead, evidence is needed that parishioners want SIDS in their villages, namely Adforton, Brampton Bryan, Lingen & Walford. 

The aim of a SID is to draw drivers' attention to their speed and if travelling over the speed limit, encouraging them to slow down.

Costs would be covered by funds from a Section 106 Agreement, the precept will not be increased to pay for them.  Let us know your thoughts by using the Contact Us page names/addresses withheld (data protection) with comments only passed on to the clerk Maureen or phone her direct on 01568 770547.

HWTs May species of the month is the Red-tailed Bumblebee. Pollinators have been getting a fair amount of publicity recently - and with good reason! Most plants rely on insect pollination to reproduce so they're vital for our eco-systems - and most of our food. This distinctive species is a good one to spot. Find out more on our webpage and let us know if you see these - or any other bee species in the county at or email
