Status: New - One Inch Sheet 198 South Herefordshire 1898 - published 2008; intro by Derrick Pratt. This Inch to the Mile map covers much of northern Herefordshire. Coverage stretches from Hereford northward to the outskirts of Leominster, and from Weobley eastward to Bromyard. This is orchard country and Derrick Pratt notes that "by 1790 fifteen varieties of cider apple and six of pears were being grown within the county by 'people of all stations'", and that "with its interspersed hopfields the north Herefordshire landscape takes on a unique, distinctive appearance". Other features of note include the long closed railways from Leominster to Bromyard and from Hereford to Hay. It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map. Herefordshire: Ashperton, Bartestree, Birley, Bishops Frome, Bishopstone, Bodenham, Bredenbury, Bromyard, Burghill, Byford, Canon Frome, Canon Lyon, Credenhill, Dilwyn, Dinmore, Docklow, Dormington, Eardisland, Edvin Loach, Edvin Ralph, Felton, Ford, Grendon Bishop, Hereford, Holmer, Hope under Dinmore, Humber, Kenchester, King's Pyon, Leominster, Little Cowarne, Lugwardine, Mansell Gamage, Mansell Lacy, Marden, Monkland, Moreton Jeffreys, Moreton on Lugg, Much Cowarne, Munsley, Norton Canon, Ocle Pychard, Pembridge, Pencombe, Pipe and Lyde, Preston on Wye, Stoke Edith, Stoke Lacy, Stoke Prior, Stretford, Stretton Grandison, Stretton Sugwas, Sutton St Nicholas, Tarrington, Ullingswick, Wellington, Weobley, Westhide, Weston Beggard, Withington, Wormsley, Yarkhill, Yazor.
Advantages: Atmosphere. Well produced - Escapist Disadvantages: Story line too unrealistic for me
...Last week I came across one of those special offers in HMV (4 DVds for £20). It was end of the season sale and I picked up a film called "The Village" just to make up the numbers. It struck me as being some sort of clichéd horror film from the blurb on the cover and I didn't expect to be watching it in the very near future. But it was one of those DVDs that keep popping up every time I looked...

Review of The Village (DVD)
...The Village, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan on a budget of 60 million dollars, was going to be a tough follow up for a director known for his twists and turns. As it turned out, there was a twist, but it was a rather low key one, and it was almost apparent from the start, though it is not without a small end revelation, that will surprise you.
This movie starts off really slowly...
Advantages: Interesting insight into past homes and lives Disadvantages: Possibly difficult for disabled visitors to access parts
...The Village Museum in the South African Cape Winelands town of Stellenbosch was one of my highlights of a morning spent in this pretty, historic town. The museum has four historic houses from different periods of history which show how the people lived in the day. Each house is attended by a different ?guide? in traditional costume. They will tell you a little about the origins of the house...
