Pictures of Ledbury
a Historic Market Town in the county of Herefordshire
In the busy High Street stands the beautiful old 17th-century, Market House which is supported by chesnut pillars. Just opposite is the Feathers Inn which dates 16th-century and has many fine features from this period.
Ledbury is a town to visit at any time of year and is exceptionally pleasing on Boxing day, when the local Hunt meets outside the Feathers and all the towns folk gather in Victorian costume. Morris dancers gather to entertain on the huge old slabs beneath the ancient Market house. Ledbury was the birth place of the poet John Masefield (1878-1967) and each summer this is commemorated by the town hosting a Poetry festival.

Random England fact:
The Equestrian term "canter" comes from the name Canterbury. Pilgrims on their way to Canterbury to visit the shrine of famous martyr Thomas à Becket, would ride at a "Canterbury Trot" as they approached the city, which was less tiring than a gallop. The term was later shortened to canter.
