Poppies – Weeping Window

Wednesday 14 March to 29th April

The iconic poppy sculpture Weeping Window by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper at Hereford Cathedral. The work is on site as part of the final year of 14–18 NOW’s UK-wide tour of the poppies.  The men and women of Herefordshire made a huge contribution to the war effort, from the brave young men recruited into the Herefordshire Light Infantry, to the Canary Girls who filled munition shells at the Rotherwas Munitions Factory. Local farmers provided food for the country and the Front, as well as horses for the movement of soldiers and supplies.

Simply beautiful, this amazing display is a must to been seen whilst staying with us.  www.herefordcathedral.org/news/poppies-weeping-window
