The village of Kempley can be found in the North Forest of Dean district, and is surrounded by un spoilt countryside. Kempley has two churches, St. Mary's dates back to Norman times and because of the great historic value of the 12th century frescoes inside it is now managed by English Heritage, and the Courtauld Institute have recently taken on the task of preserving these relics. St. Edward's Church dates back to 1903 and was designed by Randall Wells during the Arts and Crafts movement. John Betjamin described St. Edward's as "a miniature cathedral of the Arts and Crafts Movement".
Apart from the many attractions of Kempley, there is a flourishing agricultural economy in the surrounding areas. Beef and dairy cattle are kept on farms of all sizes, from small family units with just a few head, to larger commercialised dairy herds.
Whatever the size of your herd, the risk of cattle lameness affecting their yield and well being is the same. That is why many farmers in the Kempley area call in NJB Hoofcare for:Photo from Featured Project near Kempley
