Burrington - Cast iron gravestones

Burrington Church, north Herefordshire

This group of hamlets, in the Teme Valley, shelter in the lee of Mortimer Forest in Northern Herefordshire between Ludlow and Wigmore.  They were all originally part of the Downton Castle estate and many of the points of interest  are tied to the history of the Downton Estate, which was once a major produce of iron - with great forges at Bringewood, and Mortimer Forest, managed to  provide the forge with the fuel it needed.
