Upon arrival at Leominster a visit to The Priory Church is a must visit. The Priory Church dates from the middle of the 12th century with later additions.
A nunnery in 660 A.D., it was rebuilt in the 12th century. The unique tower has work of early Norman, Transitional, Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular periods. The reformation of 1539 led to partial destruction. Inside are many interesting features including England's last used ducking stool.
From there we took a look at Grange Court the last surviving market house known to be built by John Abel, the King's carpenter. It is ornately decorated with beautiful and bizarre wooden carvings, giving it a Grade II listed status.
From Grange Court we visited Leominster Tourist information centre and greeted by friendly staff and free cakes. Always partial to a bit of cake.
Leominster itself is a good starting point should you be wanting to take a tour of the picturesque Black and White Villages of North Herefordshire
