Bredenbury is a village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England. It is located 12.5 miles (20 km) northeast of Hereford. The village lies on the A44 road, 3 miles (5 km) from Bromyard and 8 miles (13 km) from Leominster.[2]

The parish had a population of 185 in the 2001 UK Census,[3] reducing to 169 at the 2011 census, and is grouped with Grendon Bishop and Wacton to form Bredenbury & District Group Parish Council for administrative purposes.[4]

The parish church, dedicated to St Andrew, is in the syle of 1300 but was built in the 1870s from a design by T H Wyatt.[5] Land for the church was donated by William Barneby, of nearby Bredenbury Court. The Barneby family commissioned many of the interior furnishings for the new church.[6] Wyatt also designed the first phase of Bredenbury Court in the Italianate style. An extension in 1902 was designed by Sir Guy Dawber.[5]

Bredenbury Primary School is much smaller than average but was rated as outstanding by Ofsted in 2008.[7]
