Herefordshire Lore has been collecting, publishing and archiving people’s recollections since 1989. Herefordshire Lore works to remember, celebrate and record Herefordshire’s past history before it is lost with passing generations. It is run by a group of volunteers who design, plan and gain funding for projects.

A diverse range of resources have been published including the quarterly ‘In Our Age’ which can be read on this website. To get a the latest print version please subscribe.

We have published books (Women at War – In The Munitions, 2003; A Slap of the Hand – The History of Hereford Market 2007), booklets (Amazing How Times Change, 1992; The Shopkeeper’s Tale, 1996; The Schoolchildren’s Tale, 1997; Milk, Herefordshire; 2012), and magazines from Age To Age to a decade of In Our Age.

We have talked to people from all walks of life from munitioneers, housewives, farmers, railwaymen, domestics and butchers to shop keepers, cattle dealers, publicans and priests. Herefordshire Lore owes its existence to their memories.

Our thanks go to our many contributors and funders especially the Heritage Lottery Fund.


It costs only £14 a year to receive In Our Age (four issues a year). Group subscriptions (10 copies a time) are still only £30 a year.

Every issue of ‘In Our Age‘ is available to read online so that people far and wide can read it. However local volunteers work on the magazine and website to give you this fascinating history of Herefordshire.
