Sunday 25th February – Winter Walk & Behind the Scenes Tour at Snodhill Castle
Tucked away in the Golden Valley is one of the largest early Norman castles in Britain, but have you heard of it? Snodhill Castle has been hidden in the hills, half-forgotten, for more than three centuries but thanks to the tireless efforts of the Snodhill Castle Preservation Trust it is hoped the castle will become well-known once more.
The site is not open to the public but we are delighted to announce that a guided walk and hard hat tour will be taking place in February. The trip is a collaboration between Hay Ho! Bus, the Trust and local walking holiday provider Drover Holidays. Places on the walk and tour are FREE but ticketed. In lieu of a charge for the walk you are very much encouraged to become a supporter of the Snodhill Castle Preservation Trust (£10 per annum) and/or make a donation to the Hay Ho! Bus fund.
The walk is scheduled for Sunday 25th February 2018 leaving Hereford on the 1015 bus and returning from Dorstone on the 1509 service. To reserve your place, please email Anna Heywood-Skinner on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t make the event, or would like to do some homework, you can find out about the fascinating archaeology, history and potential future of the castle on the Trust’s website – https://www.snodhillcastle.org
