On our Herefordshire holiday, we spent a day in the county town. We intended to visit Hereford Cathedral, plus the Mappa Mundi and the chained library there. First we took advantage of the good weather and walked over the ancient bridge to take the footpath on the other side of the River Wye. We found people very friendly. One woman talked to us on the bridge and told us the river was running really high, and that usually you can see wide concrete platforms that support the span pillars.
I've already shown you a picture of the giant statue guarding our car, and of course it was only a matter of time before I gave you a classic view of the cathedral from the other side of the river.
It was only a short walk along the river bank to an attractive footbridge to get back to the town centre.
On the other side of that bridge, we found a grand memorial pillar guarded by canons.
