Hereford is placed on the lovely River Wye, in beautiful,rural surroundings. The town is very busy with all the markets, shops, theatres and restaurants you could wish for rubbing shoulders with the most historical buildings.
History highlights include the 13th century Mappa Mundi, the oldest surviving map of the world and a fascinating social document of the time. The Cathedral dominates its area with intricate stonework dating back to the 11th century. The Victorian art gallery and museum is another fascinating piece of architecture, with exhibits to match and the smaller, but very interesting Black and White House Museum gives a snapshot of city life going back to Jacobean time.
All around the town centre, there are examples of fine and fascinating buildings and areas like the Butter Market that is now surrounded by modern shops and offices, but stands proudly for the City's history.
With historic buildings in and around the town, some national monuments, some still in use, owned privately or by the local council, we often find ourselves called on in the Hereford area to ensure that when the grime from traffic, bird fouling, general day to day soiling or even graffiti is removed from a treasured building, there is no damage to the often delicate stonework beneath.
