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.

Lingen Indoor Carpet Bowls Team celebrated a very successful 2014/15 season at Brienton Village Hall on Thursday 5th March. Having clinched the North Herefordshire Indoor Carpet Bowls League title the week before, they were very successful at the inter club completions.  Roy Price retained the coveted singles trophy whilst Jean Edwards and Gill Williams were runners up in the pairs.  The club have convened on Thursday evenings during the winter months for the past sixteen years as a social occasion, having a chat, cup of tea and a friendly game.

It is only the second time to have won the league shield, although in individual competitions they have a good record.
