Toilets Toilets available

Check the map for toilet locations as not all our venues can offer a full range of toilet facilities as they are not generally open to the public.

Getting Here

Much Marcle lies on the A449 Ledbury to Ross on Wye road.

We are just 15 minutes from the M50 motorway (Junction 2), 2.5 hours from London and 1.25 hours from South Wales and the West Midlands.

Getting around

Most venues are within walking distance of each other – eg the walk from Hellens to Westons Cider or to Awnells Farm takes around 20 to 30 minutes. A tractor and trailer service will operate between Westons Cider, Much Marcle Memorial Hall (for Hellens and St Bartholomews Church) and Awnells Farm (for Gregg’s Pit).  Woodredding Farm and Avenue Cottage are slightly further away – the walk from Westons to Woodredding Farm via the ‘top’ road past Avenue Cottage takes about an hour.

Car Parking Parking available

Westons has a large tarmac car park and there is a large field at Hellens for parking. Parking at other venues is more limited. Some field parking at Avenue Cottage and Lyne Down and there’s a small car park at the Memorial Hall.   There are only two or three spaces on the road by St Bartholomew’s Church so please leave these for people with blue badges. Gregg’s Pit has parking in a large field, but the access lane is very narrow – so be prepared to reverse if necessary.  Awnells has parking in the farmyard but do take care as this venue is popular with children.

We would ask you to be considerate to Much Marcle residents and not park in residential streets.

Please think about parking at Hellens or Westons and then walk to the other venues, or use the tractor and trailer service. 

Dogs

Many venues are preparing fruit for processing or food so please bear in mind that dogs may not be allowed in certain areas such as orchards, where fruit may be on the ground awaiting collection, or The Great Barn at Hellens where apple tastings are served.  Please check the map for venues where well-controlled dogs are permitted.

Public Transport

Ledbury has a railway station served by West Midlands Railway and GWR with direct trains from Birmingham (via Worcester), Hereford and London (via the attractive ‘Cotswold Line’ from Paddington).

There are no weekend buses to Much Marcle from Ledbury so the only option apart from cycling from Ledbury at the weekend are taxis – there is no taxi rank so you will need to phone well in advance for one.  Google “Ledbury Taxis” for a current list.

You may be able to take a bus from other Herefordshire locations but the options are very limited.  See https://bustimes.org.uk/localities/E0053319 for possibilities.

Using SatNav?

Postcodes are provided for the main locations but please be aware that rural postcode areas can be quite large and you could be taken to a point some distance from the actual event – eg HR8 2LY is the postcode for a large area of Much Marcle – look out for the signs on the roadside when you near your destination
