Weobley, pronounced 'Webley', is one of the largest villages and civil parishes in Herefordshire, situated just eight miles away from Leominster and 12 miles north-west of Hereford. Our name Weobley comes from 'Wibba's Ley', with a 'ley' being a term for a woodland glade whilst 'Wibba' is the name of a local Saxon landowner, so in effect Weobley means 'Wibba's woodland clearing' and even features in the Domesday Book.
Our quiet and picturesque village sits in the very heart of the Herefordshire lowlands, an area characterised by wide river valleys, arable farming, low hedges, steep wooded hills, beautiful orchards and extensive hop yards. Over the years the village has changed from being a medieval wool trading centre, through glove making and ale brewing to the friendly village that it is today. We even saw a visit from King Charles I, who stayed in the village following the battle of Naseby in 1645.
