Joe Hillaby’s 100-page Presidential address to the Woolhope Society, ‘Early Christian and Pre-Conquest Leominster’, in 1987 was followed in 1995 by ‘Leominster and Hereford: The Origins of the Diocese’ in Medieval Art, Architecture and Archaeology at Hereford, British Archaeological Association Conference Transactions 15, and in 2000 by his chapter on the ‘Columban and Roman’ church in The Early Church in Herefordshire.

This book brings together the history of Minster, Priory and Borough. Available from the Priory's book stall at only £10 because of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, all proceeds go to the Friends of Leominster Priory.
