Mortimer Country Car Trail

Mortimer Country Audio Car Tour

You can now fit an English Civil War heroine into your car along with several modern-day residents of the area of north-west Herefordshire known as `Mortimer Country' - and it won't be a squeeze at all. This is the third in the series of Herefordshire’s Hidden Extras audio car tours. The 45-mile circular route begins and ends in Ludlow   We introduce you to current residents as well as some of the historical characters who played an important part in shaping the area. For instance Lady Brilliana Harley, who defended Brampton Bryan against the Royalists in the 17th Century, is just one of the people you will hear, and we tell you about the huge yew hedge around the churchyard. Price £5
