Wellington Heath. I This lovely hamlet lies about li miles nertk-west of Ledbury. It is somewhat of a miniature Mal- vern, standing on hilly ground, though it is hid from view from tke town of Ledbury by the Frith Wood, behind which it is sheltered from the aorth. The houses are dotted here and there between the two hills. The road leading to the Heath is rather hilly in parts, and ita undulating formation gives it a romantic touch. Hope End, once the residence of Elizabeth Barrett- Browning, the poetess, is close to the village, but the building afterwards gave way to a modern mansion, built by the late Mr C A Hewitt, who was unfortunately compelled to leave the place owing to it being gutted by fire. From the top of the Heath some lovely landscapes are obtained.
