Hereford was one of the first towns founded in England after the end of Roman Rule. Early Hereford was a frontier town on the border between kingdoms inhabited by the ancestors of the Welsh and of the English before there were such countries as ‘Wales’ and ‘England’. The English never totally conquered what is now modern Herefordshire as the many Welsh place-names in the county attest – parts of Herefordshire were never in ‘Anglo-Saxon’ England.

The city’s isolation contributed largely to its economic stagnation in the post-medieval period and many attempts were made to improve Hereford’s communications with the outside world. A horse towing path on the banks of the navigable River Wye was opened in 1810 and a horse-drawn railway opened to the canal wharf at Abergavenny in 1829. One of the last canals to be built in Britain reached Hereford in 1845.

In December 1853 the City of Hereford celebrated the opening of its first railway connection. Regular railway services to South Wales began in January 1854 and lines to Gloucester, Worcester and Brecon were opened in the following ten years.
