EWH01 A view of Ewyas Harold's church from the bridge. The church, 'St. Michael and All Angels', is not as isolated as this photo makes it appear (buildings, including the Village Shop & Post Office, are just to the left & right) but this perhaps gives a feel for what things are like in much of the county. For more about the village, see www.ewyasharold.com.
ADO01 2 miles from Ewyas Harold, along the B4347, is Abbey Dore which is a small village, little more than a hamlet, that surrounds Dore Abbey in the parish of Abbeydore. [That 1- 2-word distinction between 'Abbey Dore' (the village) and 'Abbeydore' (the parish) is not always adhered to.] For more about the Abbey, see www.doreabbey.org.uk.

Left A view looking across to the Black Mountains, looking down on the village of Longtown. Taken from the side of the road from Ewyas Harold to Longtown.

Right Having turned slightly to the right after taking the photo above, looking across to the Hay-end of the Black Mountains, showing the 'Cat's Back' on the right.
BAC01 This picture, taken in early July 2013, was of particular interest to the photographer because this letter box was the only nearby 'facility' recorded in a Search on the property he had bought in December 2012.
BAC02 On the B4347 just out from Bacton, towards Vowchurch, looking towards the old Dore Union Workhouse at Riverdale Park (just below Kerry's Gate) which has been converted into several homes. For more about the old workhouse, see www.workhouses.org.uk/Dore.
BAC03 Around the above-mentioned Riverdale Park on 12th December 2017, the day on which we were due to have our Christmas Meeting. The meeting was cancelled (postponed) because several local roads were somewhat dangerous after bad weather. Around most of Herefordshire there had been heavy snow followed by a mild thaw followed by one of the coldest nights for many years. That was not a good combination.
