The Women’s Land Army.

The Landswoman was the official magazine for the Woman’s Land Army.

On this site you can see who they were and what they did through the two great wars. You will gain a great insight into this important group that, like many others such as munitions workers, contributed so much to the home front in two world wars. Not only that, their work in industries previously considered to be a ‘man’s job’ in a ‘man’s world’, made it impossible for the 1919 government to ignore women’s enormous contribution together with their call for equal rights.

The Woolhope Club

The Woolhope Club must surely be the oldest history related group in our county, and still going. In over one and a half centuries their work is famous and extensively documented in publications available throughout our Herefordshire Libraries network. Not only is the content of their journals interesting in itself, it is interesting to read in older of them how they conducted themselves and the great expertise available within their organisation. Just a bit difficult to find what you want sometimes.

The Mortimer History Society.

One of a few local history societies that does not confine its activities to a small geographical area this society researches and records in surprising detail the life and activities of not  just one, but several of the great marcher lords and Welsh princes and other Norman nobles as well as diverse buildings relating to the period. Fascinating stuff .

New Weir Forge by far the largest forge in our area and was situated on the right bank of the Wye in our parish. One can still see substantial parts of it still surviving today after many years of floods and stone robbing. Look on the Herefordshire bank alongside Symonds Yat Rapids and you can’t miss it.
