THE plan to put the Hereford Bull in High Town may have been in the public domain for as long as you say, but it was not widely known.
Until about a month ago most people I know thought it was going on the Tesco roundabout, which still seems the ideal site for such a symbol of the county, visible both to residents and to those passing through.
People like to sit in the sun under the few remaining trees the council has allowed us in High Town. We do not want them removed.
Rather than standing by the ancient Butchers’ Row, surely the bull would be far better sited on a grassy hill, sheltered by a weeping willow in a highly visible but relatively inaccessible and thus vandal-free position, surveying (and thus commemorating) the site of Hereford’s historic cattle market?
I, too, back the idea of the bull, but was very glad that Hereford Civic Society called for a rethink on its position.
“Educating on the county’s architectural past and informing on the future for that heritage” seems to me exactly the role that the society is playing in this matter.
