BOSBURY BACKGROUND

 go to home

Bosbury is a small country village in Herefordshire, a county of England situated immediately beside the border with Wales. Just outside the eastern edge of the county are the famous Malvern Hills, which we can see from the village, and the county town of Hereford is sixteen miles to the west.

This is a farming area with apple and pear orchards, hop yards, potato fields and cattle pasture, in particular you will see the white and red-brown breed known as Herefordshire cattle. It is in the valley of the tiny river Leadon (pronounced Lèd-un) and incidentally Bosbury is pronounced Bòz-buree. Many of the houses in the main street and the public house (once a coaching inn) are timber-framed with a black-and-white timber frontage. And many of these houses and old farmhouses have the status of Historic Listed Buildings.

So without further ado I suggest you dive into the History Resource.
