Lugwardine is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England, to the east of Hereford. It lies on the northeast bank of the River Lugg, which gives the village its name; the population of the civil parish taken at the 2011 Census was 1,721.[1]

The village lies on the A438 road; Lugwardine Bridge takes this road across the Lugg. There is a public house in the village, called the "Crown and Anchor".[2]

St Mary's Roman Catholic High School is in the village.[3] There is also a primary school, shared with neighbouring Bartestree.[4]


The parish contains the village of Lugwardine as well as the following hamlets:[5]

  • Hagley - situated on the A438 to the east of Lugwardine, now part of the village of Bartestree.
  • Tidnor - a very small place, situated to the southeast of Lugwardine; there are several orchards at Tidnor Wood.
  • Longworth - situated to the southeast of Lugwardine, slightly further than Tidnor; Longworth Hall is a notable listed building.[6]
