‘There has been a place of worship on the cathedral site since at least the 8th century, although no part of any building earlier than the 11th-century bishop’s chapel survives. The cathedral is home to the Mappa Mundi, the only complete world map of its kind to have survived, made by Richard of Holdingham. As well as a map, it is a fascinating pictorial encyclopaedia of the medieval world. It may have been made for Hereford Cathedral and has certainly been there for most of its life. It is now one of the cathedral’s greatest treasures and a tourist attraction of international importance. In 2007 it became the United Kingdom’s second entry on the UNESCO’s Memory of the World register – a status for documents and collections similar to that of a World Heritage Site.’
