Vicar of St Peter’s with St. Owen’s Church, Hereford. 1833 – 1870

Narration by Jules Hudson an English archaeologist and television producer and presenter, best known for presenting the BBC Two series Escape to the Country.  Conductor:  Bernard Morgan

Hereford 1832-the population of the old city had expanded from 9000 to 10300 and was emerging from the Middle Ages. Herefordians were hopeful of a way forward. It needed a driving force to make this come about. The man was John Venn. He arrived in 1833 and was appointed Vicar of St Peter’s church.  Apart from his ecclesiastical duties John Venn worked tirelessly to better the lives of those in the workhouse, brought education to children, and generally improved the lives of Herefordians.
