Pictures of Walford
Walford lies in the rural countryside about 4 miles from the old market town of Ross-on-Wye. The village, sitting at the confluence of the Walford and Stoneybridge streams is an ancient community - it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. It is ideal for anyone wishing to take in the picturesque scenery of the Wye Valley, get away from it all and relax. Some of the lovely vista's of the area include Walford Church, Goodrich village and castle, Ley's Hill and Chase Woods.
The local parish church is dedicated to St.Michael and all Angels. It is of Norman origin, with the central core of the church considered to be some of the oldest building work in Hereford. The church, built of sandstone, has a northern tower, north and south porches, with four bays to the nave and a north aisle. The church lies within a tranquil churchyard where lime trees form a Road of Remembrance to the men lost in World War I. A pair of gates gifted by Lieut-Colonel L.D.Frewen, commemorate the dead of World War II. The stone piers supporting the gates were provided by the parishioners. In the churchyard visitors can see scattered graves, crosses and tombs.
