Welcome to Lyonshall

The Parish Council helps to maintain the rights of way within Lyonshall boundary. In many places the stiles have been replaced by gates and this process continues. The attached map shows the footpaths, all of which should be passable. If you notice a problem please inform the clerk or Herefordshire Council who have overall responsiblity.

In browsing local bookshops and information centres I have discovered several published books or leaflets that pass through Lyonshall. Many are available in Kington in the Walking Hub Shop or the Tourist Information Centre. I have listed those I know about below. Please feel free to message the clerk with any others that you find.
