Church of England Diocese of Hereford Lingen

Opening

The church is open to all between 8am and 6pm (or dusk, if earlier) every day of the year.  There are 2 steps at the entrance - contact the Churchwarden (01544 267452) if you would like the ramp to be deployed.  A tarmac path leads from the car park about 100m away.

Getting here

Lingen village is at the junction of unclassified roads close to the Welsh border - the nearest bus services are 5 miles away at Leintwardine (from/to Ludlow & Knighton) or Presteigne (from/to Kington & Knighton).  Rail services are at Bucknell (Heart of Wales line, 6 miles), Ludlow & Leominster (Cardiff-Manchester line, each 11 miles).  Good food is available in the village  at the 'Royal George', open Sat/Sun lunchtimes & Tues-Sat evenings (01544 267322).

In this remote corner of rural Herefordshire, the history of the Marches is all around.  A public footpath leads north from the churchyard, past the remains of Lingen Castle (a motte-&-bailey) in the next field, onward to the humps and hollows that mark the original village site; while from the church porch, a prominent mediaeval field system can be seen nearby on the opposite hill.

Our church services are usually on the first and third Sundays.  In other weeks, we are welcomed two miles away at our sister church, All Saints', Kinsham, or at St Andrew's, Presteigne, the principal church of the group.
