History of Hereford

Hereford is best known as a Cathedral City, and it lies on the River Wye, It’s origin dates to Saxon times. 

The Saxons Arrived in the 7th Century and by 676 AD it was made the seat of a Bishop, then by 700 AD it had grown into a town. 

Hereford expanded during the rule of the Norman And French Kings from 1066, the town became one of the most important in the country with its massive stone castle and thriving marketplace. 

In 1100 a stone bridge was built across the Wye to replace the Wooden one, in 1204 The Bishop’s Palace was built next to the Cathedral & at the end of the 12th Century they built stone walls around Hereford. 

Hereford Cathedral dates back to 1079 making it one of the oldest Cathedrals in England, it contains a medieval map of the world from the 13th Century, called the ‘’Mappa Mundi’’ and a chained library, allowing the books to be read as they extend out but not removed from the library.

St Peter’s Church, built in 1087 has a rich history and is in the historic heart of the City, next to the Town Hall, Shire Hall & the fallen of Hereford. The Building was restored in 1888 but it was a very cold and dark building but in recent years has been refurbished again.
