Find a Traveller site
We currently run and manage six sites for Travellers. The sites are spread fairly widely across the county, however there are virtually no sites in the south and south west of the county.
The council-owned Travellers' sites in Herefordshire are:
This site has seven pitches. This is a rural site and the residents would benefit from having access to a vehicle to access local amenities. The nearest market town is Ledbury where there is easy public transport access to Hereford including a railway station in Ledbury.
Watery Lane, Lower Bullingham, Hereford
This is an eleven-pitch site, close to Hereford City. Most of the residents at Watery Lane have lived together for many years at various locations. While one access road to the site floods, there is an alternative route and the site itself has not flooded.
Open Fields, Linton, Bromyard
Bromyard is a twelve-pitch site. This site has been refurbished in recent years and is a valuable asset to the number of plots available within the county. This is a rural site and the residents would benefit from use of their own transport.
Croft Lane, Luston
Croft Lane is a ten-pitch site. This is a mixed age and culture site and is popular with new Travellers, however, recently it is developing as a mixed culture site where residents are tolerant of each other's cultures. The nearest town is Leominster where there is access to public transport including a railway station.
This is a six-pitch site. This site is in a rural setting and the residents would benefit from the use of a vehicle to access amenities. The nearest market town is Leominster where there is easy access to Hereford using public transport. There is also a railway station in Leominster.
Romany Close, Grafton, Hereford
Grafton is a ten-pitch site. It is one of two sites based in Hereford. It is occupied primarily by an extended family and has family members of all ages.
