About Pixley and District
Pixley is situated some four miles from the town of Ledbury and ten miles from the city of Hereford and lies mainly to the south of the A438 Ledbury to Hereford road. The adjoining villages of Aylton, Munsley and Little Marcle all lie within three miles, and together the four parishes are administered by the Pixley and District Parish Council. At one time the economy was based exclusively on farming and while this is still true to a large extent, the introduction of the Internet has allowed many to work from home bringing a greater diversity of work to the area, as the demand for workers on the land becomes more seasonal and mechanised .
Pixley itself, rather like Little Marcle, Aylton and Munsley, is more a collection of farms rather than a village with a centre, but enjoys typically beautiful Herefordshire countryside with rolling hills and valleys. Like many English villages the social centres are the churches and pubs. It is also an area which has been inhabited for a long time, with Pixley being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and churches dating from the 13th and 14th centuries.
