Herefordshire’s Rivers: Paradise in Peril

Herefordshire’s Rivers: Paradise in Peril is supported by Leominster Priory’s PCC and runs from August 9th to October 7th. Entrance is free; Opening times are 9.30am – 4pm daily. Sunday times are slightly different because of the morning service from 10am -11am.
This exhibition brings you high quality displays from the Woolhope Club on a multiplicity of rivery topics, new data from Citizen Science testing of the Lugg and tributaries, and information from Friends of the Upper Wye, Save the Wye and others involved in awareness raising. Alongside this there are artworks, poetry, textiles and maps to explore and reflect on. It turns out that Leominster Priory had its very own Paradise in medieval times.

From 9th – 13th August Leominster Priory is very pleased to welcome two visiting sculptures: Our Lady of the Waters by Philip Chatfield and Lugg Riverbend at Mortimer’s Cross by Jackie H Morris.
Our Lady of the Waters travelled along the Wye last summer, mounted between two canoes. She visited several churches en route, including Belmont Abbey and made the national press. Lugg Riverbend at Mortimer’s Cross, also completed in 2022, was recently exhibited at the Three Counties Show. This striking piece is the culmination of a community project involving many sewers who embroidered snowdrops and explored the Lugg through poetry and music.
