With a population of 55,700 people, the City of Hereford - Herefordshire's county town is the largest settlement in the county, lying 14 miles north-west of Ross-on-Wye by road and 23 miles north-west of the City of Gloucester.

Hereford's Cathedral dates from 1079 and is the home of a chained Library, the Diocesan Treasury and the 'Mappa Mundi,' which is the oldest surviving map of the world, drawn on a piece of Vellum in about AD 1290 by Richard de Haldingham.

Hereford is a beautiful city, well worth a visit if touring the Wye Valley and is also a good place to head for if visiting Ross-on-Wye and the Wye Valley by train.
