Widemarsh Street, Hereford

The section of Widemarsh Street refurbished forms a link between the inner ring road which encompasses the historic city walls of Hereford and the main pedestrian area of Hightown.

Client: Herefordshire Council
Location: Hereford
Value: £1.4m


The approximate area is 2000m2, the street varies in width between 8m-12m and is approximately 200m long. The area is pedestrian only between the hours of 10.30am-16.30pm. Mid-way along Widemarsh Street, Maylord Street was also re-furbished as part of the works.
The works consisted of re-paving the street with natural stone, installing new drainage where required and street furniture to provide a more pedestrian friendly and attractive route into the city centre of Hereford. The following materials were utilised:

  • Footway areas – Pennant sandstone flags/setts
  • Kerbs and channel blocks – Granite and Porphyry
  • Carriageway areas – Porphyry stone subes/setts.

The project was completed on time and on budget allowing the street to be fully opened for the busy Christmas shopping period.
