Law, Life and Landscape Exhibition

July 24, 2017, 10:00am - July 24, 2017, 5:00pm

An exhibition celebrating 800 years of Hereford's 1217 official copy of Magna Carta The 1217 Charter brought to an end a civil war in England that the more famous 1215 Charter had failed to conclude. It was the first to be called 'Magna' (Great), to distinguish it from the smaller Forest Charter published alongside it. The cathedral possesses one of only four surviving official copies of the 1217 Magna Carta. It is too fragile to be on permanent display, although it did go on a 37,000-mile world tour in 2015, when it was seen by 25,000 people. The Forest Charter which would have accompanied it is lost, but the cathedral is displaying a late 13th-century copy in the register of Bishop Richard Swinfield, kindly loaned by the Herefordshire Archive and Records Centre (HARC).

What a lovely photograph ...

The famous statue of Edward Elgar​ in Hereford was revealed in 2005, outside of Hereford Cathedral. It has since become a staple of Hereford's landmarks. What do you think of the statue, and which other Herefordians deserve a statue of their own in our City?
