    History of Herefordshire

    by grayfo Written Feb 15, 2012

    Favorite thing: Due to Herefordshire’s location on the border of Wales, the county has been the site of many battles fought between Celt and Saxon, Norman and Celt, Norman and Norman, Lancastrian and Tudor and, later still, Parliamentarian and Cavalier.

    King Offa, one of the Saxon kings who controlled Herefordshire during the 9th Century built a dyke to keep out the warring Celts; this dyke is now a long distance footpath that can be walked along the English Welsh border. When the Normans arrived, they built a series of castles, which were owned by wealthy several hundred years.
