Pictures of Leominster
Fine wool has been produced here in this gentle country town since the 13th century and owing to the close proximity of the county town of Hereford and the rich farmland that abounds throughout this lovely area, prized Hereford cattle are bred here for exportation to countries all over the world.
In the town several black and white buildings still exist and these include Grange Court built by John Abel in 1633. This building was formerly the town hall, it was taken down and re-erected on it's present site in the mid 1850's. Of great interest too is the Priory church which has a double nave, finely decorated windows and an intricately carved norman west door. Inside this beautiful church all is calm and peaceful and on view is a large, well preserved, wheeled ducking stool.
From these early days Leominster has developed into a prosperous town and there are many interesting streets both in and around the town. Broad Street, as its name suggests is wide and full of gracious buildings which house a variety of antique emporiums all of which stock a range of antiques from textiles to fine art and furniture. Along other streets and walkways can be found many general stores and supermarkets.
There are several noteworthy inns and eating houses and a major draw to the town are its two auction houses both of which hold regular general and fine art sales
