As a starting point, ‘Welcome to Herefordshire’ gives lots of information about living and working in Herefordshire here. It’s particularly useful if you are new to the area and here’s a Google Map of where we are:
RIVERS AND FLOODING INFORMATION
There are two main rivers runnng through the parish which are the River Lugg and the River Arrow. The Lugg is an SSSI (Site of Special Sciebtific Interest) so is protected under government legislation.
The current river levels are shown in the automatic gauges data below which are updated every 15 minutes. The Byton automatic gauge is for the Lugg north of Kingsland and the Eardisland gauge is on the Arrow. Click on the gauge names to get more information about them.

We will also be running a number of events to help promote our 30 Days Wild campaign – see press release also attached – which is all about encouraging people to get out and endeavour to do something wild throughout the month –information about it is also on HWT’s website http://www.herefordshirewt.org/30-days-wild
