The village of Wellington Heath is just outside Ledbury on the Bromyard Road, and is  on the side of a hill.


Back in Victorian times Wellington Heath was often known locally as Monkey Island, or even Hell on Earth, mostly due to the frequency of drunken fights and general bad behaviour!  Thomas Heywood who owned much of the village decided to try to sort things out and set about building both church and school.

These days the villagers are very peaceful!
