Quiz: England v Wales - find out who should you REALLY support

Herefordshire is a border county.

It has an English capital with a Welsh mayor, who – thanks to a law penned back when the county was passed between the two like a bikeshed cigarette – you can shoot with a longbow on a Sunday. But only outside the Cathedral. Or something.

While Herefordshire is now quite clearly a bastion of Anglo-Saxonism, there remains among us a quiet minority of leek-eaters. Some are second generation leek-eaters, some are third. Some just really like Tom Jones.
