During our holidays we took a trip to Hereford and visited the Town Centre and Cathedral. We’ve never been to Hereford before and have to say it is a beautiful city. The grounds of the cathedral were immaculate. Anyway, after a stroll through some narrow streets, we headed for the river.

As I was taking this shot from the bridge, a lady crossed the bridge and started to talk to me… she said, in all the years she’s lived in Hereford, she has never seen the river so low. In fact, she told me that they had built sea-defences there and still at times the river floods. In the photograph below you can see the new wall built to head with sea-defences.

Hereford is a beautiful city… and if you get the chance to visit… it is well worthy of your time to pop in.
