The Neighbouring Villages.
There have always been close connections between Gorsley and one of its closest neighbours Kilcot.
The earliest parts of St. Mary's Church date from the 12th Century. Linton is now also becoming famous for its annual beer festival held at the Alma Inn.
Along the B4221 between Gorsley and Ross-on-Wye lies the parish of Upton Bishop. From the apply named Hill Top there are spectacular views across Herefordshire to the Breacon Beacons and Black Mountains.
The woods and countryside around Kempley are well known for the amazing display of wild daffodils in the Spring and the historic Norman Church of St. Mary's.
A short trip down a narrow country lane leads to the community of Oxenhall. Parts of St. Anne's Church date from the 14th Century and the Church overlooks the Hereford to Gloucester canal, which has undergone partial restoration in recent years.
"Not really a village but a parish of scattered dwellings set all around with woodland stretches and everlasting hills. May Hill guards its south-eastern boundary, the high slopes of the Royal Forest of Dean come near to forming the south-western boundary. Penyard and Chase Hill lie not so far to the west, Queens Wood to the north and then in the further distance the magnificent humps of the ancient Malverns, the dark outlines of the Black Mountains and beyond again the tops of the Brecon Beacons - all these give a wonderful backdrop to the rolling green fields and orchards in which the parish nestles.
