Dinmore is extra parochial, and is situated about 1 mile west of the Hereford and Leominster turnpike road, and about 2 from Wellington. The chapel is a stone building in the early English style of architecture, with square tower and beautiful stone spire.  The living is a donative in the patronage of Fleming St. John, Esq.; the Rev. William T. Vernon, M.A., is chaplain.  Dinmore House adjoins the chapel; it is a commodious and ancient stone building, which has recently undergone considerable repairs.
