A centre of Norman society, Herefordshire is still home to a number of castles and estates constructed for the wealthy property owners and earls of the period. Goodrich Castle, adjacent to Ross-on-Wye, is a well-preserved estate that can be visited by the public. There is also the ruined Wigmore Castle, which was built just after the Norman Conquest. Hereford Cathedral is an ancient site containing the medieval Mappa Mundi, a map of the globe dating to approximately 1289. Ross Heritage Centre, at the 17th-century Market House in Ross-on-Wye on the River Wye, offers sightseeing and photo opportunities as well as a footpath for hiking that winds along the picturesque Wye Valley.
