Bridge Sollers is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England, 10 km (6.2 mi) west of Hereford, on the River Wye.

The village consists of 12 households and has a 12th Century parish Church, St. Andrew's, which is a grade I listed building. [1]

Bridge Sollers takes its name from the surnames of a family connected with the parish. Simon de Brugge (b. 1272) married Mary Solers c.1297.

The first bridge was built at Bridge Sollers in 1896. Previously there had been a ferry system for crossing the river, and the nearest bridge was at Hereford. This bridge was replaced in 2004.

Nelson Garage used to trade as a petrol station and garage, but has closed for business and is now a used car dealership.[2]
