The church of St. Michael is the only public building in the parish. It is surrounded by an outstanding churchyard of great natural history interest which is full of orchids in the spring. It was built in the nineteenth century to replace a much older church that formerly lay in the grounds of Dulas Court.
Rising in Newton St. Margarets and fed by springs, the Dulas Brook runs down the Dulas Valley and through the centre of Ewyas Harold before it joins the Monnow. This stream enjoys excellent water quality and it is rich in wildlife. The endangered White-clawed crayfish and otter use the brook as a corridor. Kingfisher, pied flycatcher and dipper are regularly seen here.
Dulas Churchyard is the most outstanding natural feature in the Parish. Thanks to careful management the churchyard is wonderfully rich in wild flowers, particularly orchids in the Spring. Visitors come from far and wide to admire the remnants of Herefordshire's natural flora which has mostly disappeared out as a result of modern farming practises.
