This is the first 'topographical' Red Book in the VCH Herefordshire series, which builds on work for the England's Past for Everyone project which produced two paperback volumes on the market town of Ledbury. These were followed by three VCH Shorts; EastnorBosbury, and Colwall. A fourth, Cradley, will be published in 2023. Subject to continued funding,  we aim to complete the volume by 2025 for publication late in 2026/7.

Places to be covered (available drafts are highlighted in bold) are: Ledbury, Bosbury, Coddington, Colwall, Cradley, Donnington, Eastnor, and Mathon.
