An Old Map of Herefordshire by John Speed
The early cartographer John Speed’s map shows Herefordshire as a county with a rolling landscape rising gently into the foothills of the Welsh Mountains. The land is crisscrossed with many brooks, streams and rivers flowing into the river Wye. Herefordshire had been victim to many Welsh incursions and, as a result, a network of defended castles had been established. By 1610, twenty-eight of these fortresses still remained and by then were occupied by local landowners.
