  1. Prefer it when it is closed, nice and relaxed with lots of people and cyclists using it, sort of got used to it now.

  2. Livestreamed documentary Rivercide to unmask UK’s water polluters George Monbiot hosts innovative investigation naming the farms and water firms damaging Britain’s rivers Giant livestock farms and privatised water firms accused of polluting the nation’s waterways are to be named in what is thought to be the world’s first livestreamed investigative documentary. The crowdfunded investigation Rivercide, which will be broadcast online at 7pm on Wednesday, will be hosted by environmental journalist and Guardian columnist George Monbiot. Monbiot will travel along the River Wye, which flows between England and Wales, to collect water samples that will be analysed as the documentary unfolds. “This is a really shocking story of how our rivers are being devastated,” said Monbiot. “We’ll be revealing some serious wrongdoing.” Monbiot decided to focus on the River Wye after a disturbing canoeing trip last summer. He found the Wye, which was once prized for its salmon, had changed beyond all recognition over the course of a decade. “There hadn’t been any rain so it should have been crystal clear but you couldn’t see anything,” he said. “I made the mistake of going swimming. As soon as my nostrils got near the water I nearly gagged because it was so disgusting. When I got out, my whole body felt like it was coated in slimy snot. It was like something out of a 1970s science fiction film.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jul/14/livestreamed-documentary-rivercide-to-unmask-uks-water-polluters

  3. This was an excellent project and well done to all of those volunteers. Not seen so many people in Hereford for a long time.

  4. Yet another example of the appalling driving that we see all the time now, as well as being drunk, drugged and having no licence, mot, tax or insurance, take your pick. It's fast becoming like the wild west, we need some Sheriffs!

  11. That one is horrific - 12 rooms, reminds me of a factory farm. Lots of points don't comply with Building Regs either(not that that stops Planning).

  12. Over the past few years, we have noticed more and more planning applications to change use from shops to residential flats and accommodation. Again today plans have been submitted here for 145 Eign Street Hereford shops are slowly disappearing and Herefordshire Council are often granting these plans. We will attempt to start highlighting each of these applications to show the scale of this trend from the Council. How plans were passed in Eign Street for this lot previously is beyond comprehension, how is this in keeping with the surrounding area? These buildings bricked up look horrendous!

  13. An interesting sculpture but the visitor number? I was past it quite often and there was always a number of visitors but it was never really crowded It was on display for 28 days so at total of 102,000 that is some 3600 a day I am not decrying the event just querying the visitor numbers And you can always hand in unwanted knives at the police station
