Historic Leominster and North Herefordshire
Leominster is situated in the rolling countryside of North Herefordshire and lies in the beautiful and historic borderlands of England and Wales known as the “Marches”. The town itself is an ancient one, having established itself around the great Anglo-Saxon abbey, founded in 660 AD.
Much of the town centre still retains its medieval and Tudor flavour – narrow streets and half timbered houses, whilst Church Street and Etnam Street boast gracious terraces of the Georgian period.
The North Herefordshire area is home to many wonderful villages, including those on The Black and White Village Trail and Mortimer Country, places to visit and stunning scenery.
