Stretton Sugwas lies just over 6km to the north-west of Hereford on the Roman road leading the the city of Magnis.

In 1757 Meredith Jones made a survey of the Stretton Court estate in Stretton Sugwas for Guys Hospital, the then owners. His magnificent map gives detailed information on the acreage (both stature and local measure) of a large number of plots of all kinds including strips in open fields.
