Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Herefordshire  /  Weobley
Weobley is a large village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England. Formerly a market town, it is today one of the county's black and white villages.The name possibly derives from 'Wibba's Ley', a ley being a woodland glade and Wibba being a local Saxon landowner. In the Domesday Book the village name was transcribed as Wibelai. It is still pronounced as "Web-ley" (the spelling being similar to nearby Leominster which also does not pronounce the letter 'o' in its name).In the Saxon period it is known that brewing and glove-making were carried out in the village.The village has an historic church, the Church of St Peter and St Paul, with a Norman south doorway, a 13th-century chancel and 14th-century tower and a spire that is the second-tallest in the county; castle ruins; a high school and a primary school with a pioneering system of heating.In the village is 'the Throne', a large 400 year old building - King Charles I spent the night here on 5 September 1645, after the Battle of Naseby during the English Civil War.It was once incorporated as a borough, sending two Members of Parliament to the House of Commons until the Reform Act 1832, (see Weobley (UK Parliament constituency) and once had a borough corporation.
