Plans made to save Hereford's city walls

Plans are being made for repair and conservation work to Hereford's city walls.

The walls have appeared on English Heritage's "at risk" register for a number of years.

Herefordshire Council said it wanted to hold public consultations about its plans for the walls.

These include starting urgent repairs to some sections and making public access better.

A self-guided city walls walk could also be created.

A spokesman said the walls formed part of the city's defences and were generally regarded as being of national significance.

"These walls are one of Hereford's key heritage assets and, together with the cathedral, make a great contribution to the city's identity, so it is only right people have a say over their future," he said.

Consultation runs from 28 February to 22 May.
