The county of Herefordshire, England


The county of Herefordshire is situated in the west of England 0n the border Wales and Offa’s Dyke. To the north is Shropshire and to the South and East are Gloucestershire and Worcestershire respectively.

Herefordshire, set in The Marches, is one of the most beautiful unspoilt counties in Britain. Farming has always been the basis of Herefordshire life, and today's visitors will find the small fields, hedgerows and orchards which are quintessentially English and still famous for producing cider apples, perry pears and soft fruits - not forgetting the famous breed of hereford cattle.There are a plethora of picturesque villages dotted around the county which seem little altered since the Tudors.

The peaceful countryside and and quiet pace of life belie the turbulent and often violent history of the region. One of the earliest and most abiding memorials to that history is Offa’s Dyke the great 8th century earthwork thrown up to mark the border.

There are a plethora of hisoric attractions and heritage sites to visit in Herefordshire including the magnificent Eastnor Castle near Ledbury and Goodrich Castle in Ross-on-Wye.
