Photographer's Note

"Ledbury is a town in Herefordshire,

It is east of Hereford, and west of the Malvern Hills. Ledbury is an ancient borough, dating back to the Domesday Book, where it was recorded as Liedeberge, and returned members to Parliament in the reign of Edward I.

Ledbury probably takes its name from the River Leadon, on which it stands. The Old English berg (hill) has been added to the river name.

Ledbury was once home to the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who spent her childhood days at Hope End. It is also the birthplace of poet laureate John Masefield, after whom the local secondary school is now named - John Masefield High School (JMHS).

Today, Ledbury is a thriving market town in rural England. The town has a large number of timber framed buildings, in particular along Church Lane. Notable buildings in the area include the parish church, the Painted Room (containing sixteenth century frescoes), and Eastnor Castle."

The above information was extracted from Wikipedia.

It was a very dull day when this shot was taken, and the colours, especially of the sky were poor.

As the town is renowned for its "Black and White" buildings, I thought a B & W image would be appropriate.
