Hennor Estate, near Leominster
« on: Sunday 20 April 08 19:07 BST (UK) »
I recently discovered that one of my ancestors lived/worked on the estate.

I know that it's near Leominster but I can't find it on any map.

Any help would be appreciated

Seems it is an area just North of Leominster Town. The estate may be mentioned in directories of the time, or contact the Leominster Historical society at http://www.leominsterhistorical.org/

Hennor estate is located near Hamnish just outside Leominster.

If you look on a road map, you would need to take the A44 Leominster to Bromyard road. Follow the first left turn where you will come to a cross-roads. Go straight over at the cross-roads.

Hennor Estate is located on the right hand side approximately half way between the first turning on the left and the first turning on the right.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help.

Now that the nice weather has arrived I'll drive up there.
