Herefordshire

Status: Active, 1 volumes published

One volume was published in 1908, which is still available to purchase. The Herefordshire VCH Trust was formed in 1998 to revive the project in the county and was successful in including Herefordshire in the Heritage Lottery Fund’s ‘England’s Past for Everyone’ project.  The four year project which was led by Dr Sylvia Pinches, produced two paperback volumes on the town of Ledbury, Ledbury: A Market Town and its Tudor Heritage and Ledbury: Parish and People Before the Reformation

Following the successful conclusion of the EPE project, parish histories have been published of Eastnor  and Bosbury. Research is ongoing on Colwall and Coddington, and some work has begun on Donnington and Cradley.
