Widemarsh Common

Widemarsh Common is a public open space in Hereford. It is owned by Herefordshire Council and is used primarily as a recreational ground for both cricket and football.[1] It is the home pitch for Hereford Lads Club Cricket Club.[2]

It was once the location for local cider firm W.M.Evans & Co who were eventually bought by Bulmers.[3] The location of the company premises is not entirely clear.

Saint John Kemble was hanged, drawn and quartered at the common on 22 August 1679.[4]
