The Herefordshire CMHTS assessment reports for the medieval towns were reviewed by the County Archaeologist for the new Herefordshire county archaeological service in 2000-2001, and a report was published. This is: Ray, K. (2001), 'Medieval towns in Herefordshire: a management report' Herefordshire Archaeology Report 20. This added Brampton Bryan, Lyonshall and Much Cowarne to the list of 'towns', but noted the 'market village' nature (and relatively short duration) of most such settlements in the county. Lyonshall is remarkable both for the size of the planned settlement, and the extent of surviving earthworks, now Scheduled as an Ancient Monument. A volume on the history and archaeology of the medieval towns of the county is in preparation, to be published by Logaston Press.
