All sales go to support the work of Herefordshire Lore.

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' and our latest book 'A Slap of the Hand'. A related 'Teaching Pack' is also available on this web site. Our thanks go to our many contributors and funders especially the Heritage Lottery Fund.
