Ruspidge and Soudley Parish Council

Welcome to the Ruspidge and Soudley Parish Council website. The parish of Ruspidge and Soudley lies on the outskirts of Cinderford. As a general rule of thumb, the centre of St. White's Road marks the boundary. Proceed down St. White's Road from the roundabout (Mount Pleasant Inn) and homes on the left hand side are in the Ruspidge and Soudley Parish.
