The Wye Trow

Named 'The Hereford Bull', this historic replica of a River Wye 'trow', or river barge, reflects an important part of Herefordshire's heritage. Built in 2012 to represent the county in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, it is now based in Hereford during the summer as a popular sight on the Wye below the cathedral. It is used for training by the Sea Cadet Corps and raises the county's profile by being in demand for TV documentary filming. When a jetty is built at the SCC unit with disabled access, in summer 2015 we hope, the trow will be used for trips for disadvantaged people. Although crewed by volunteers, the trow's insurance, upkeep and transportation adds up to about £5,000 a year, and income at present is about £1,500. Please support this piece of living history and help its good work for the county and especially our young and disadvantaged people.

More information about the trow can be seen on the website www.theherefordbull.org.
