Herefordshire is a West Midlands county on the border between England and Wales. Within England, it is bordered by Shropshire in the north, Worcestershire to the east, and Gloucestershire to the south-east. The cathedral city of Hereford is the county town and is the largest settlement in the county. Herefordshire is home to two Areas of Outstanding National Beauty; the dramatic Wye Valley, and the Malvern Hills towards the east of the region.
Herefordshire has existed since at least 1051, when it was mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. In the middle ages, Herefordshire was actually regarded as a rather lawless area, and this persisted until the 18th century when more creative professionals such as poets and artists moved into the area. Nonetheless, in comparison to other parts of England the county lagged behind in terms of its industrial development. Agriculture has always played a key role in the local economy, particularly in relation to cider.
Due to the county’s low population density, there are relatively few large companies that are based in Herefordshire. Interestingly, Hereford has become somewhat of a hub for private military companies; at least fourteen different companies in the industry are based in the city. This is partly due to its close proximity to the SAS, which is also situated nearby. Aside from this sector, some of the most well-known companies with ties to Herefordshire are cider producers; Weston’s and Bulmer’s cider both originates in the region. The NHS is the largest public sector employer in Herefordshire.
The average house price in Herefordshire is £277,901 according to Zoopla, and Ross-on-Wye is the most expensive town in the area. Movers are drawn to Herefordshire for its excellent schools, attractive landscape and idyllic rural towns and villages, in which many houses are Listed buildings. However, for those who would prefer a move to a more modern property, the homes being built through regeneration schemes are likely to be an attractive option. Hereford is also relatively well-connected, with various routes between the area and the rest of the West Midlands, as well as easy access to Wales.
With an estimated population of only 191,000, Herefordshire is the fourth least populous county. It also lacks ethnic diversity; 98.2% of Herefordshire’s inhabitants are white, 0.8% are Asian, and only 0.2% are black. On average, Herefordshire’s population is older than the national average. 24% of Herefordshire’s inhabitants are over 65, compared with only 18% nationally.
Herefordshire retains its agricultural, rural heritage. The Bromyard Folk Festival is held annually every September and features traditional arts and performances. A visit to any cider-based attraction, whether it’s a tasting tour or simply a visit to a local pub, is sure to bring satisfaction. Outdoor activities are available in abundance in either of the county’s Areas of Outstanding National Beauty. Due to the county’s small population, all the towns and settlements in Herefordshire have a close-knit community feel, and this is reflected by the widespread presence of markets and independent shops.
