Pembridge, Herefordshire

Pembridge is a village located just south of the River Arrow on the A44 between Leominster and Kington in Herefordshire, England. Describing itself as The Jewel in the Crown of the Black and White Village Trail, Pembridge has a history stretching back at least eight hundred years and is notable for its many timber-framed buildings. As a result, it has been possible to date the construction of many of them using tree ring counting techniques with remarkable accuracy.
