Kilverts Hotel, Hay-on-Wye
Situated on the corner of Bear Street and Bell Street, the inn is named after a literary gentleman, Francis Kilvert. Kilvert was a Victorian country parson and kept a diary from 1870 to 1879. He lived in Clyro, Radnorshire, and began keeping a journal about his day to day activities. He also served under his father, Revd. Robert Kilvert, in Langley Burrell, Wiltshire; was vicar of St Harmon's near Rhayader and, finally, vicar of Bredwardine, Herefordshire. The diaries are considered to be a minor classic and of significant social historical value.
The literary connections of the town now spread across the world.
