Leominster Herefordshire in the sun is my collection of photographs after visiting this town on a beautiful spring day in April. 2018. Wall to wall sunshine and the temperatures were in double figures for what has seemed the first time ages!
After a long hard winter, this was the first day that the sun had shown the slightest promise of more to come. It is full of half timbered buildings and the main square is a busy hive of activity. It is one of five towns and also the largest in the county that surrounds the city of Hereford. The other four are, Bromyard, Ledbury, Ross on Wye and Kington.
Where Is It Situated?
Situated about half way between Ludlow to the north and Hereford to the south, Leominster is a typical quaint English town. Whether you’re in the car or bus, there is the 40 mile Black & White Trail which is well worth the time. It’s a trip back in time through the surrounding villages, Dilwyn, Weobly, Eadisley, Lyonshall and Eardisland with their stunning streets of black and white buildings.
Before leaving, a visit to the museum is highly recommended. It’s open from April until October and the reviews on Tripadvisor alone are a great reason to visit.
I got to see about half a dozen parachutists jumping from a small aircraft and all of them landed safely in a field outside of the town. You can see them as tiny specks on one of my photographs above. One thing I noticed about the town, is how many barbers shops there are. I was surprised that so many could survive in a relatively small space, but they must each have their USP.
I will certainly be going back during the summer months. If you’d like more information about the town, click here: Leominster Website.
