Herefordshire [ hɛɹɪfədʃə ] is a county in the region West Midlands in England . Herefordshire is bordered by the counties of Shropshire to the north, Worcestershire to the east, Gloucestershire to the south-east and the Welsh counties of Gwent to the south-west and Powys to the west.


In 1974 the county was combined with Worcestershire to form the joint county of Hereford and Worcester . At that time the districts of South Herefordshire, Hereford and parts of Malvern Hills and Leominster existed in the area of ​​the current county.

On April 1, 1998, the administrative reform was reversed and the county was transferred to an independent area of ​​a city district without further districts ( unitary authority ). The official name of the Unitary Authority is County of Herefordshire .

Herefordshire is a very rural county that lives mainly from fruit growing.
