DORMINGTON is a parish and straggling village situated on the Hereford and Ledbury turnpike road, distant 5½ miles E. from Hereford, 9 W. from Ledbury, 145 from London, and about 2 from Withington and Stoke Edith stations, on the Hereford and Worcester section of the Great Western Railway. It is in Greytree hundred, Hereford union, county court district, electoral and petty sessional division, diocese, and archdeaconry, and Weston rural deanery. The area of Dormington is 970A. 3R. 20P., the rateable value being £1,226 19s. 6d. Lady Emily Foley is lady of the manor, and principal landowner. The soil is a red loam; the subsoil is marl. It is chiefly applied to arable, pasture, meadow, and hops. The church of St. Peter is an ancient stone edifice, with tower (containing two bells), nave, chancel, porch, &c. The earliest register dates from A.D. 1700. The living is a vicarage, annexed to the perpetual curacy of Bartestree, joint annual value £284, with residence and six acres of glebe, in the gift of Lady Emily Foley, and held by the Rev. Langton Edward Brown, B.A. of Trinity College, Cambridge. Divine service is held on Sundays at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. alternately. There is no school in the parish. The charities belonging to the church amount to about £5 10s. per annum.
