The Roman road, south to Hereford and beyond, runs across the Arrow Valley and Shobdon Marshes from top to bottom of this plan. At lower right, the River Arrow joins the River Lugg south of Leominster. The surrounding countryside appears intensively farmed. Throughout this region of Herefordshire, based on rich red clay, farmland dominates in a landscape of well-hedged fields scattered with small woods and threaded by streams and brooks.
