Pale grey nodular or thinly bedded limestones. In character it varies markedly across the region. Examples from the Malvern Axis hills (Abberley, Suckley etc.), Ledbury and Woolhope Dome can be spectacularly fossiliferous, corresponding to reef bodies. During the Silurian water depth deepened towards open ocean to the west and around Ludlow the Wenlock limestone is a calcareous siltstone and rarely so fossiliferous as in the centre and east of Herefordshire.
A variety of Wenlock Limestone quarried in the hills above Ledbury, dark grey and highly fossiliferous, it can be polished as a decorative stone. The cobbles of Church Lane, Ledbury, are Wenlock Limestone of this type.
