Hereford Cathedral is certainly worth a few hours of your time. It is not the largest of cathedrals and so is quite managable. The ancient Mappa Mundi is a fascinating insight into the way in which previous generations have perceived the world. Although the original is rather dark , the finer details can be appreciated on the facsmilie copy in the exhibition area. The Chained library is fascinating, with ancient editions of some key reformation works. It is a pity that a few are not open to view. The accompanying exhibition on the history of book printing is interesting. However, for us the star is the small chapel with wonderful modern stained glass windows commemorating the poet Traherene, There is so much detail in each window which just keeps you transfixed as you see more and more in them
