Coronavirus Government Guidelines

Government restrictions were eased on May 11th but the UK is certainly not out of the woods and for those in the extremely vulnerable categories, things remain the same. In fact, 30% of our county population is estimated to be at risk/vulnerable and Herefordshire seems to be a little behind on the curve. . . so we must stay vigilant.

For those who are not particularly vulnerable, the COVID-19 recovery strategy means you can now:
  • meet one other person from a different household outdoors, staying 2 meters apart
  • exercise outdoors as often as you wish, following social distancing guidelines
  • use outdoor sports courts or facilities, such as a tennis or basketball court, or golf course – with members of your household, or one other person while staying 2 metres apart.
  • go to a garden centre, following social distancing guidelines.

Dilwyn Village CentreDilwyn is a beautiful rural parish in the north west of Herefordshire in the United Kingdom. It is 6 miles south west from the market town of Leominster and 13 miles to the north west of Hereford city. Dilwyn is a relatively large parish at 2,363 hectares and is very sparsely populated with only 0.3 people per hectare. It is one of the pretty half-timbered villages that are prevalent in this part of Herefordshire and, as such, forms part of The Black and White Trail that leads visitors through the area.

Pastoral ViewThe area has much to offer to visitors who seek beautiful countryside, a slower pace of life and relatively quiet roads.

Mentioned in the Domesday book, present day Dilwyn is the result of more than a 1,000 years of settlement. Because of this, Dilwyn has many historic buildings and interesting features. The central village itself is designated as a conservation area. However, Dilwyn civil parish includes much more than the central village. Within the 6400 acres of the parish are the hamlets of Sollers Dilwyn, Little Dilwyn, The Haven, Hill Top, The Hurst, Headland, Bearton, Bidney, Henwood, Stockmoor and Stockingfield amongst others. The 2011 census lists 300 dwellings and a population of 711 for the whole parish.

Dilwyn is an ideal starting point for touring the local trail of black and white villages. Time spent by visitors looking at the church of St Mary, examining the pretty local buildings and cottages, strolling on the green and perhaps visiting the pub and its garden or taking tea at the Old Forge will give a taste of the desirable quality of life enjoyed by this community.

The Notice Boards on the village green have information for visitors on the reverse sides.
