Hereford History Tour Summary

Hereford History Tour by Derek Foxton

Hereford History Tour takes the reader on an exciting journey through the city's long history, which began with the establishment of the Saxon St Guthlac's monastery on the site of what is now Castle Green. Slightly later came the building of the cathedral, around AD 680. The city, destroyed by the Welsh and repaired by the Normans after 1066, was visited by Charles I. Today, Hereford extends far beyond the medieval walls. The curious and nostalgic alike will delight in uncovering or rediscovering the roots of this ever-changing city with the help of this brilliantly illustrated guide.
