Survey of Dunn Bogg’s farm in Herefordshire. In the 18th century Herefordshire was primarily an area of arable farming. The red soil of the area was very fertile and this was helped by the county being crossed by the rivers Wye, Lugg and Frome. An orchard is marked on the survey of the farm. Orchards have been an important feature of Herefordshire farming since the 14th century and by the 18th century there were more orchards in this county than any other in England. The River Wye can also be seen in the survey- it was on this river that goods were transported on barges, to and from Hereford.
