The River Wye Preservation Trust launched their publication 'Landscape Origins of the Wye Valley' at How Caple Court on Thursday 30th October. The book edited by Heather Hurley has been published by the trust in association with Logaston Press, and is the result of a three year funded project investigating the history and development of the countryside between Hereford and Ross.

Over 120 guests represented members of the River Wye Preservation Trust, the Ross-on-Wye Civic Society, the Woolhope Naturalists' Field Club, the Wye Valley AONB Unit, the Fownhope Local History Group, the Little Birch History Group, Archenfield Archaeology and supporters and volunteers of the Landscape Origins of the Wye Valley project. Wine was served by Jon Hurley and food by Jenny Dereham, while William Dereham sold copies of the book which Heather signed.

Simon Dereham, Chairman of the Trust introduced Stuart Thomas, Vice-Chairman of the Joint Advisory Committee of the Wye Valley AONB, who launched the book. Heather gave a brief description of the project and thanked the volunteers and the contributors to the book - David Lovelace, PJ Pikes, Simon Dereham, Jon Hurley, Mark Robinson, Philip Anderson and Rebecca Roseff.
