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.

'It was an exceptional Lingen weekend'

Plans for the August bank holiday weekend started early here in Lingen, primarily with Mary (the chair of AAI) sending out entry forms to local artists and craftsmen with a view to their works being included in the exhibition and sale at the village hall.  Lingen Stitchers and Needling Along sewing groups made ready their quilts and year work for display in the church: after many long hours of sewing.

The churchyard grass was cut to its usual high standard and the village hall windows and floors were polished in readiness, along with its surrounding hedges cut and trimmed.  With cakes and bakes turned out of their tins and the tea urn primed it was only then that the village was ready for  'Lingens Long Weekend' when it played host to two fine exhibitions for folk to come and enjoy. 

If you made it along and paid both the exhibitions a visit last weekend we hope you thoroughly enjoyed them and also hope to see you again soon at one of our many autumn events.
