[Ross-on-Wye.] 76.[The attractive market town of Ross lies on the River Wye in Herefordshire. The town's most prominent building is the thirteenth century church, which stands on a rock overlooking the town, with its graceful spire a conspicuous landmark for miles around. It is opposite to the Markey Hall, a building or red sandstone erected in the reign of Charles II. The quiet, pleasant streets of Ross have made the town a favourite with artists and writers, amongst them Charles Dickins. It was here that he met his friend and biographer, John Forster, and decided to undertake his American reading tour of 1867-8; also associated with the town is the charitable and eccentric John Kyrles, immortalized by Alexander Poper as "The Man of Ross." Ross-on-Wye is in every way a typical market town of the West Country.]
