The Village of Putley in Herefordshire


Welcome to Putley's website.


Putley Church


Putley is a small village of a few hundred souls, about five miles west of Ledbury. It has been famous over the centuries for its apples, pears, cider and perry.

There is a survey of the flora of Putley Common. See the survey. And the list of flowering plants.

First, an important note for contributors. There is a new text editor as of last year. The old one was flaky. This one is better. The most important point is do NOT press 'Enter' to create a line break (i.e. start a new line). Instead, click a symbol RH side third row down... 'BR'. For more info click the 'question mark' help button to open up a page of tips.

This is the Putley village website, which started in 2009. It is an 'open access' site so you'll be able to see all of its development. This means you will also be able to see its mistakes and inconsistencies for which we apologise now. There is a considerable amount of 'learning' involved.

Click on one of the section buttons on the left to see the sub-sections. Under Useful Contacts, there's a map (attractive but not completely accurate!), a page of useful telephone numbers, a news page, a page with important current village documents, and a section for small ads. 'Small Ads' are where you can offer items for sale, or swap, or give away, or post an appeal for a lost pet, or whatever. Small ads are free, but to do one you need to have registered as a Community Member. Which leads to...

Member Registration

Here you can register and become a Community Member. To do so you fill out a form. This asks for a deal of information, but most is optional. All we really need is your name, address, and email details. And yes, we will keep your info private, won't publish it on the site, or give it to a third party. We will send you a username and password which you can use to login.

The whole site can be read without becoming a member. But the advantages of being a member are...

  • You get emails with any news items as they are published.
  • You can use the Small Ads section.
  • If you are in business, you can add your details to a list of local traders. You can also have a basic website hosted here if you want.
  • It makes us, the Putley Website team feel better!

The other sections should be self explanatory. Except down at the bottom is Website Style, where we have our 'house rules' for how text should look and some tips on adding stuff to the site. The contributors, of which there are several, add to the site independently, so we need to try and maintain a uniform look to the site.

Note, if you find the site difficult to read, click Accessibility at the top and you can adjust the text size, text colour and the background colour.

And next to the Accessibility, there are Help files, which give all the detail on the workings of the site, should you be interested.

Thank you for visiting the Putley site. We hope you find the information useful,

The Putley Website Team.
