Attraction in Hereford
There has been a place of worship on the cathedral site since at least the 8th century, although no part of any building survives earlier than the 11th century bishop's chapel.
The medieval cathedral was not monastic: the governing body, known as the Dean and Chapter, were not monks but secular priests who led active lives in the world. They employed the Vicars Choral, a body of clergy who lived a collegiate life in the Vicars Cloister, to sing the daily cathedral services for them.
