Walford is a village in south Herefordshire, England, two miles south of the market town of Ross-on-Wye. It includes the settlements of Bishopswood, Coughton, Deep Dean, Hom Green and Walford.

The two churches in the parish, All Saints at Bishopswood and St Michael and All Angels at Walford, lie in different dioceses. The centre of the nave of Walford church was constructed around 1100 making it one of the earliest churches to be built in Herefordshire.[2] Bishopswood Church is far more recent being endowed in 1841.[3]

The B4324 Ross-on-Wye to Coleford road runs through the village.

The River Wye forms the western boundary of the parish. Kerne Bridge allows the B4229 road to cross the river to Goodrich.

Walford Court was the headquarters of Col John Birch during the siege of Goodrich Castle in the English Civil War.
