Welcome to our website which was developed to support our community and visitors. We publish news, information and events relevant to the parish and surrounding villages.
Llangarron Parish is a scattered rural community of around 200 homes centred around the small village of Llangarron, which nestles in picturesque Herefordshire countryside near the border with Monmouthshire. The parish incorporates Llangarron village itself and the surrounding area including Llangrove, Llancloudy and Three Ashes.

Honouring Llangarron Men Who Served and Died in the Two World Wars:
Several years ago local historian Bill Webb decided to research the men listed on a 1914-1918 Roll of Honour displayed in St Deinst church. Bill's investigations eventually widened to include the second World War and also a Mosquito Plane Crash in 1944 at Langstone Court in which two men died. The airmen are also commemorated in the church.
These documents are now available on this website. You can download Bill's booklets by clicking here which will take you to the relevant Roll of Honour page or by selecting the "Church" tab above and then "Roll of Honour" from the side menu.
Stan Fryer, who lived in the village for many years with his wife Mary and witnessed the Mosquito crash in 1944, produced another account of life in Llangarron in the 1900's. The booklet includes photographs of many Llangarron houses with anecdotes and stories. A copy is also available for download on the same page. Click here.
With thanks to Bill and Stan.
