#wassail, #morrisdancing and Mummer's Play, Saturday, 19th January 2019, 6.30pm
Please come to #bredwardine in #herefordshire for an evening of "good health" which is our modern translation of the Anglo-Saxon word Wassail. Meet in the Red Lion #hotel car park at 6.30pm. Torches will be lit and a procession to the orchard to perform the ceremony. The Foxwhelp Morris Dancers will dance, then the procession will move up to #bredwardinevillagehall for a few more dances, followed by a #mummersplay, which is a traditional English #folkplay popular in the 18-19th centuries. There will be drinks for purchase on the night plus nibbles at no charge in the village hall.

What a weekend! We arrived in Herefordshire Thursday morning to a very low clear River Wye desperate for some rain, expectations of catching any fish were low due to the conditions but we were in for a suprise. We caught barbel and chub of good size on all 3 days on various beats despite the poor, tough conditions.
Our third year was as good as the previous, we never get sick of the scenery and the warm welcome we receive. So much so our nexts years trip is already booked up, the fish are always a bonus.
Thanks again to Mike and everyone at the Red Lion for yet another fantastic weekend. Roll on next year!!
The coarse fishing season is underway. It's great to see so many familiar faces and plenty of new ones too.
The fish of the River Wye have been biting, and there are many tales from the river bank to be told in the bar of an evening.
If you're planning to come and fish our stretch of the Moccas fishery in Herefordshire please email us with pictures of your catch to email@example.com.
The 136 mile Wye Valley Walk follows the stunning scenery of the Wye Valley from Chepstow to Plynlimon.
We are perfectly situated along the Hereford to Hay-on-Wye mid section route before the steep climb up Merbach Hill.
So before you take on the challenge of Merbach why not recharge with a lunch stop in our bar or restaurant, or book to stay in our bed and breakfast accommodation. All of our rooms are en-suite allowing you to soak away the aches and pains of the day and we'll fuel you with a hearty full English breakfast in the morning.
If you're stopping over with us as part of a longer walk we can arrange for the transportation of some of your heavier packs on to your next destination, contact us to enquire.
