Madley, Herefordshire - Extract from National Gazetteer, 1868

[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer (1868)]
"MADLEY, a parish in the hundred of Webtree, county Hereford, 6 miles W. of Hereford, its post town and nearest railway station, and 17 N.W. of Ross. It is situated on the river Wye. A castle formerly stood here, and at one time there was a market, but it has long since fallen into disuse. Petty sessions are still held in the village. The impropriation belongs to the Dean and Chapter of Hereford. The living is a vicarage* in the diocese of Hereford, value with the curacy of Tiberton annexed, £608, in the patronage of the dean and chapter.

The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is an ancient Norman edifice of stone, with a square embattled tower. The roof is a vaulted one, resting upon pointed arches supported by pillars. It has windows of stained glass, and contains many monuments and a stone font. Beneath the chancel is the ancient crypt. The parochial endowments produce about £27 per annum. There is a National school for boys and girls. The Baptists have a chapel, and there are remains of two ancient crosses."
