Pembridge is special not just because of its pastoral and unspoiled setting but also because of its rich heritage. The Parish is home to a large number of listed buildings and Pembridge village is located within a Conservation Area - so designated in 1974. The major landmarks and monuments are protected and conserved by the Pembridge Amenity Trust, a charity established to oversee the preservation of the Market Hall, the Bell Tower, Millennium Meadow and, more recently, to maintain the public rest room facilities in the visitor's car park.

News: 1806 penny discovered under post of The Market Hall, Pembridge, Herefordshire.
Craftsmen working on the conservation of the Market Hall in Pembridge made a surprise discovery at the foot of the north east post. Like three other posts, decay had resulted in the need to remove the base of the post and replace it with new oak. When the decayed timber was removed a penny, dated 1806, was found embedded in the bottom of the post. This post stands on the original Market Cross stone base and the penny had obviously been placed by the workmen of the period to date their work. More.
