Hereford lies fourteen miles north west of Ross-on-Wye,
23 miles north-west of the City
of Gloucester and is the county town for Herefordshire.
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.
tower at Hereford Cathedral is not open every day, so if you
see the sign that it is and if you don't mind heights, it is
worth grabbing the chance to climb the steps whilst you can..
