Herefordshire Black and White VillageTrail

Welcome to the Black and White Villages of North- West Herefordshire and the market towns of Leominster and Kington. Together they contain hundreds of timber framed buildings, many of great age. Their Churches too, remind us of the long history of this area, containing records of people and events going back to Domesday and beyond.

Today these villages still possess the feeling of community which many urban dwellers would dearly love to regain. An hour or two spent at any of the places on the trail, visiting the church, the pub, tearooms and shops, looking at the houses and exchanging a word with the villagers, will give you a taste of this desirable country life. The circular trail is set out in a clockwise direction, and although the commentary starts and finishes at Leominster you may join at any point. The route is signed throughout with brown and white tourist signs. Please be prepared for and patient with, farm vehicles. The total distance is about 40 miles with stops at the villages and places of interest along the way, the circuit provides an enjoyable excursion at any time of the year.

Why not

Leave your car behind as you do not need a car to enjoy the black and white villages: a few of the villages along the route are accessible by public transport. Walking and cycling routes are also available around the Black and White villages, cycle hire is available from Wheely Wonderful on 01568 770755. who also arrange walking and cycling holidays.

The  Black and White audio car tour is approximately 45 minutes long and is available for purchase from the Tourism Information Centers.

Please follow this link for further details  of the Black and white trail

The Black and white trail is approximately 45 minutes away by car  for the Wilton Court so is  very easy to explore during your visit and can also  be reached by public transport via Hereford.

Flog it! Comes to Hereford The popular BBC2 antiques programme presented by Paul Martin, is coming to Herefordshire. Flog it!- the major BBC antiques series- regularly gets an audience of 1.5 million viewers each weekday- around 15% of the television audience and on Saturday 26th November Hereford cathedral and its newly restored cathedral close will be hosting the Flog It! Valuation day. Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to bring along antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and team of experts decide whether it should go forward for auction.it the item is chosen it is sold a few weeks later- often the owner making a tidy sum. Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a valuation-even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction. Previous programmes have seen a small cream jug sold at auction for £1,300; a ceramic bowl, bought for £4 at a car boot sale, achieving £1,500; and a lady in Aberdeen sold a shelly tea set for a huge £3,400! More recently we surprised a gentleman who bought in a ceremonial cup made from Rhino horn; it later sold for £44,000! So if you’ve ever wondered how much those boot sale bargains or clutter in the loft might be worth, now is your chance to find out Presented by Paul Martin, Flog it! Will be at Hereford Cathedral, Cathedral Close, Hereford, HR1 2NG on Saturday 26th November from 9.00am until 3.30pm. The auction will take place on Thursday 12th January 2012 at Phillip Serrell Auctioneers & Valuers and will be broadcast as part of the eleventh series next year. Free Admission for Flog It!
