Welcome to the Parish of Dorstone

The rural parish of Dorstone lies at the head of Herefordshire’s beautiful Golden Valley just four miles from the famous Welsh border town of Hay-on-Wye. Parish life revolves around village of Dorstone where a number of local societies and facilities are based. The village is well known as a hub for walkers with footpaths radiating from the village green into the surrounding hills.
