This section contains information on the local history, buildings and features and geographical location of the Civil Parish of Eardisland.
Eardisland is located in North Herefordshire, four miles west of the market town of Leominster on B4529. The village is renowned for its traditional black and white buildings and its charming, picturesque setting on the banks of the River Arrow.
Kingsland, Dilwyn and Pembridge are the three closest villages to Eardisland. These and the village of Weobley form part of The Black and White Trail which explores the attractive half-timbered, black and white villages to be found in this area of northern Herefordshire. The landscape of the parish and surrounding area is characterised by beautiful rolling arable and pastoral farmland along with ancient apple and cider apple orchards.
The eastern boundary of the parish is formed by an important Roman road known as Watling Street West, which ran from Wroxeter in the north via Leintwardine and Hereford and on to Usk in South Wales. Part of this ancient road runs parallel with (or along) the present day main road - the A4110, from Leintwardine to Hereford.
