Italy on the Wye
Italy on the Wye
This village on the right bank of the Wye has what may be the most unusual church in Herefordshire. St (Saint) Catherine's is a product of the Victorian era, being built in 1843 of red sandstone and renovated in 1885 by J P Seddon. The work was done at the cost of William Poole, vicar here for 46 years until 1901. The village is first recorded in 1005 and has a toll house and bridge. These two are on the site of a ford and ferry crossing, connecting the village with King's Caple. Time taken not available.
