Herefordshire life

These pages provide a brief introduction to various aspects of life in Herefordshire during the period from the 16th century onwards. Education and apprenticeship during the Tudor period are examined, as is the daily life of the poor at the same period and the role played in this by the large number of almshouses in the county. There is also a list of eminent Tudor personalities who had links to Herefordshire, with brief biographies. A selection of essays by guest authors examine the impact on the county's appearance of the changing fashions in landscape design as practised by wealthy landowners, and introduce three notable men who lived in Herefordshire during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
