Distant view of the city of Hereford with Hereford Cathedral clearly visible. The city lies at a strategic point on the River Wye, along England's border with Wales. Hereford played an important part in England's history, facing countless battles, sieges and raids, culminating in the Civil War when the city changed hands four times between 1642 and 1645. A large church was built on the cathedral site in the 11th century by Bishop Robert de Losinga. The Cathedral church is dedicated to St. Mary and St. Ethelbert.
