The Parish of Ashford Carbonell is located some three miles below the confluence of the River Teme and River Corve.
It is one of several settlements that are located in the river valley of the Teme. Across the river is the village of Ashford Bowdler that until the early 20th century, was in the same Parish linked by a ford. The boundaries of the Parish extend to just beyond the Serpent crossroads on the Caynham road(N.E.), Tinkers Hill on the Steventon Road, to the railwaycrossing on Saltmore Lane and towards Little Hereford to the South.
Ashford Carbonell is set amid rich agricultural land used predominantly for arable farming. The town of Ludlow lies to the North, with Titterstone Clee providing a dramatic feature in the views to the Northeast. The River Teme meanders along the western edge.
The Village is a designated Conservation Area and has a number of fine listed Listed Buildings.
There are five seats on Ashford Carbonell Parish Council and Councillors are elected every four years (next election May 2017). The position is purely voluntary and attracts no payment. (see Councillors Page)
