Leominster in 1838
Leominster, upon the river Lug, is situated in Wolphy hundred, 13 miles from Hereford, 26 from Worcester, and 128 from London. It is a borough and corporate town, returning two members to parliament. The church is handsome and the market-place old, but in an inconvenient situation ; the market-day is Friday. Several considerable cattle-fairs are held, and an agricultural society has lately been established here.
