Herefordshire is one of England’s most westerly counties bordering Wales and, along with neighbouring Shropshire to the north, forms part of an area known as the Marches. Views to the west are dominated by the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, which is one of Britain’s eleven national parks. To the east, the county is bordered by the Malvern Hills and, in between flows the Wye River and its tributaries, the Lugg, Arrow and Frome.
With the exception of the City of Hereford and the five market towns of Leominster, Ross on Wye, Ledbury, Bromyard and Kington, the county is mainly rural, and is the second most sparsely populated county in England. Located centrally in the county, Hereford has a population of 56,600 people, approximately 32% of the Herefordshire total population. This is growing at a faster rate than national averages, predominantly as a result of inward migration.
