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.

Christmas Shopping in Hereford the Xmas street lights in main town will be turned on from Sunday 15th Nov. 5pm with the Old Market shopping centre turning theirs on from Wednesday 18th Nov. 5.30pm.  Free parking at the shopping centre from Wednesday 18th after 4pm and every Wednesday thereafter in the run up to Christmas.



Message from West Mercia PNN:  We would ask you all to pay attention to were you leave personal property i.e. Mobile phones, Handbags (try not to leave them open while shopping), Purses, Wallets. This is the time for thieves to strike just before Christmas.  At home make sure your property is secure as we are now at the time of long hours of darkness, thieves think this is their time to strike. Everything is valuable to the villain.



Dial the new NHS number 111 when it's not an emergency but if in doubt dial 999.
