Weobley Village, Herefordshire, England.

Weobley (web-lee) is a large village in Herefordshire, England.

 Formerly a market town, it is today one of the county’s black and white villages. The term “black and white” derives from presence of many timbered and half-timbered houses in the area, some dating from medieval times. The buildings’ black oak beams are exposed on the outside, with white painted walls between.

In the village is ‘the Throne’, a large 400-year-old building – King Charles I spent the night here on 5 September 1645, after the Battle of Naseby during the English Civil War.
