When you come to visit us at Tinsmiths, consider including a visit to nearby Hellens (as featured in this weekend’s telegraph colour supplement). Hellens is one of Herefordshire’s treasures, an ancient “lived-in” private house that has been valiantly fighting the ravages of time without loosing its charm and becoming “pickled”. From monastic dwelling to finery of Georgian life the house has some stories to tell and a variety of architectural styles as well. Visit it from Early April to early October, mid-week on Wednesdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.
