Hereford Cathedral
There has been a church near this site since at least the 8th century. The current (Norman) Cathedral was originally built in the 12th century in the Romanesque style and much of it is still standing.

The early cathedral was somewhat closer to the river. The current cathedral is built on the site of the Saxon market, according to an early map in the book, A Slap of the Hand -The History of Hereford Market, published by Hereford Lore.
