Building Stones Trail
The city of Hereford nestles in the Wye Valley amid open countryside. Founded in Saxon times (as early as the 7th century), it is thought to broadly retain the original street plan. There is an interesting mix of buildings, from mediaeval lath and plaster dwellings, to Georgian brick houses and stone public, commercial and religious buildings. A variety of building and facing stones have been used that are prized for their beauty Ñ some local and some from as far away as Italy, Finland and Norway. This trail includes a remaining section of the mediaeval walls which formed a semi-circle around the town.
This trail takes approximately two hours to complete.
