Ross on Wye Favorites: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Favorite thing: The earliest recorded reference to Ross-on-Wye was in a document from 1016 that was presented to the Bishop of Hereford; Ross is also mentioned in the Doomsday book as a village and manor belonging to the Bishop of Hereford. It also notes a priest and a mill, meaning that by this time Ross-on-Wye had grown into an established village with a church and a corn mill. In the 12th century King Stephen granted the town a charter, this allowed the town; the King’s charter stimulated the economy of Ross-on-Wye and attracted trade from the surrounding countryside.
