Moccas is a small village situated right on banks of the River Wye, a stretch famed for its fishing (salmon, barbel as well as chub, pike, roach, dace, perch, gudgeon, and bleak) and canoeing, with spectacular scenery and wildlife. It is also an area dominated by trees, notably the oaks of Moccas Deer Park, a National Nature Reserve not open to the public.
Just over the steep hill that overlooks the farmlands of the village is Dorstone, Arthur's Seat and the Golden Valley. Hay-on-Wye with its bookshops and increasingly cosmopolitan air is close by too.
The diarist, Robert Francis Kilvert, briefly ministered at nearby St Andrew's Bredwardine until his untimely death from peritonitis on September 23rd 1879 just after returning from his honeymoon. He wrote of the area "the lovely valley gleaming bright in the clear shining after rain.......when the evening sun struck out jewels of gold where he lit upon the upland slopes and hill meadows ....and the river blazed below the grey bridge with a sparkle of a million diamonds".
In the absence of any general shops the Village Hall plays a vital role in bringing the community together.
