Something different this Saturday and Sunday – it’s the legendary AULDEN ARTS & GARDENS openings (2-5pm, 4 miles SW of Leominster). Once a year, three wonderful neighbours set about celebrating art in their gardens. From photography and watercolours, to textiles, prints and canvases, the art (as well as the gardens) varies from traditional to the more zany!

Nature is the fertile ground, the inspiration for the art, and this tranquil Herefordshire hideaway is a beautiful place to experience both. Fragrant English roses, lawns and veggie plots, cottage flowers, ponds, chickens and rustic barns – it’s the perfect way to while away an afternoon. Cakes available too!

Full details: https://ngs.org.uk/view-garden/29977
Entrance is £8, children free, and all the money raised goes to helping our incredible nursing, hospice and wellbeing charities.

**LEOMINSTER GEMS**

If you've ever visited Leominster we're sure you will have found the beautifully renovated Grange Court. Built in 1633 at the end of Broad Street to initially serve as a market hall, then known as the Butter Crosse.

By the mid nineteenth century, the market hall was proving a traffic hazard in the town centre. So the building was dismantled and lay in pieces in a builder’s yard until 1859, when the building was bought by John Arkwright (of the spinning jenny family).

Fortuitously it was then rebuilt on the park known as the Grange and with some modifications leased to the Moore family.

Grange Court remained a family home until 1939, when Leominster District Council made a compulsory purchase to save it from being dismantled and moved to South Wales to become the gatehouse to St. Donats Castle.

Today you will find a showcase of the King's Carpenter John Abel's finest work within its walls. With the museum mapping the enchanting heritage and history of the town since Roman times.

But don't forget to look out for the busy Mr Granger. Created for the 2006 Britain in Bloom competition, Mr Granger an iron sculpture of a man mowing can be found beside the cricket ground and is always happy to have his photo taken.

**KINGDOM, ROYALTY, SAINTS & PILGRIMAGE**

Did you know that the beautiful village of Ewyas Harold which sits within the Golden Valley near to the Welsh border can be traced back to the 5th and 6th century? In a time when the River Severn divided Wales from the Kingdom of Mercia and Clydawg who later became a saint was King in Ewyas. Alongside his brother, Clydawg trained as a priest under the care of Saint Cadoc, Abbot of Llancarfan and became a holy man.

Little did he know that upon his return to Ewyas a local woman would fall in love with him and refuse to marry anyone else including the local Saxon noble who had been pursuing her. This resulted in the Saxon noble killing Clydawg while he was out hunting deer, taking his life with the shot of an arrow. Clydawg's body was placed on a cart and was taken to the river below the present church in Clodock. Unfortunately during the journey the cart broke and his body could go no further so he was buried near Longtown. A chapel was built above his burial site and this became a site of pilgrimage.

Our wonderful Herefordshire villages are steeped in history and we just love discovering these little snippets.
