We are a group of four parishes (Aylton, Little Marcle, Munsley and Pixley) clustered around the A4172 and A438 about three miles west of the town of Ledbury in Herefordshire and together the parishes are administered by 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. In addition tourism is playing an increasing part in the local economy.
The parishes themselves are collections of farms and isolated properties rather than villages with centres and enjoy typically beautiful Herefordshire countryside with rolling hills and valleys.
It is also an area which has been inhabited for a long time, with Pixley being mentioned in the Doomsday Book and three of the churches date from the 13th and 14th centuries.
