The HR postcode area, also known as the Hereford postcode area,[2] is a group of nine postcode districts in England and Wales, within six post towns. These cover most of Herefordshire, including Hereford, Bromyard, Kington, Ledbury, Leominster and Ross-on-Wye. The area also covers very small parts of Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, while the HR2, HR3 and HR5 districts extend across the border to cover a small part of Powys.
