These pages concentrate mainly on the architecture of Herefordshire during the period 1500-1750. Topics covered include the boom in building in the county at this time, an examination of the materials used, and discussions of the various types of building represented, from prestigious public buildings and country houses to modest vernacular cottages and farm buildings. A guest author essay by Duncan James looks at domestic architecture in Herefordshire. Moving further back in time, there is also a section devoted to Hereford Cathedral, with information on its history and architecture and a glossary of architectural terms.
