This is a collection of old pics taken south of the old Wye Bridge in Hereford around the turn of the 19th century.
They have been very kindly donated to us by the Hatton Family for all to see.You may have seen some of these pics before in some of Anne Sandford's publications in the 1980s but sadly these books are no longer in print.
Once again a very big thank you to Ed Hatton for allowing us to use these wonderful pics for all to see.
