LEDBURY.

On our journey to Pembrokeshire we stopped off to take a look around Ledbury and pleased we did. Ledbury is an ancient borough, dating back to around 690AD. In the Domesday Book it was recorded as Liedeberge, and returned members to Parliament in the reign of Edward I. Ledbury probably takes its name from the River Leadon, on which it stands. The Old English berg (hill) has been added to the river name. The Feathers Hotel at Ledbury was a famous 16th century drover's inn.
