Redcliffe Gardens (Hereford)

Redcliffe Gardens form an attractive area in the ancient cathedral city of Hereford.

This is the site of the keep of Hereford Castle, which was built in 1052 during the reign of Edward the Confessor, in the course of Harold of Wessex's campaigns against the Welsh.

The neighbouring Castle Green is the site of the castle bailey. The castle was demolished in the 17th century.

The house known as Castle Cliffe was the watergate of the castle.

Beside Redcliffe Gardens, which have the air of a village green, is St. Ethelbert's Well, set into a wall. The spring is said to have gushed from the grouns at the site of the behaeding of St. Ethelbert.
