Michael Portillo with a copy of Bradshaw's Railway Guide
The BBC series Great British Railway Journeys, presented by Michael Portillo, has been travelling through Herefordshire.
The former politician looked at the Mappa Mundi, in Hereford Cathedral, at the Hereford breed of cattle, and at Perry manufacturing in Ledbury.
It's part of a railway journey from Ledbury to Holyhead, via Chester, and taking in the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
The series is based on the Victorian Bradshaw's Railway Guide.
The Mappa Mundi was made in the 13th Century
Michael Portillo says that Bradshaw's Guide gives an fascinating glimpse of how Victorian Society viewed things like the Mappa Mundi:
"There's just one reference in my Bradshaw's Guide - it says "A curious Anglo Saxon map" - so we went to look at it, and it's a gem, a treasure.
"You can see how the Victorians would have regarded it as rather curious, because it's not a geographically accurate map."
You can hear a full interview with Michael Portillo on Andrew Easton's afternoon show on BBC Hereford & Worcester, on Monday, 10 January, between 1200 and 1600 GMT.
