Welcome to Longtown Group Parish Council website

Longtown Group Parish Council serves the parishes of Craswall, Llanveynoe, Longtown and Walterstone, a rural community all located in the south west corner of Herefordshire.

The parishes form part of the Golden Valley South ward of Herefordshire Council.

The parishes lie on the Welsh border where the Brecon Beacons National Park gives way to the red soils of Herefordshire. The spectacular scenery is dominated by the sweep of Hatteral Hill and the sharp ridge of the Black Hill, known locally as the Cat’s Back. It includes the river valleys of the upper Monnow and its main tributaries, the Escley and the Olchon.

Farming is the real bedrock of the area, mostly sheep, but there are some dairy and a fair number of horses. Tourism is becoming increasingly important and several farms have diversified into bed & breakfast or holiday let accommodation.

Please contact us if you have questions concerning the work of the Parish Council, if you have any concerns that you feel the Council should be aware of or where it can help or support you.
