Wilton is a village in south Herefordshire, England just under a mile west of the market town of Ross-on-Wye.

In 1100, Henry 1 set up 3 royal manors in Herefordshire, including the manor of Wilton. This included a number of surrounding villages such as Peterstow.[1]

Wilton Bridge [4].

Now the village is known for the roundabout where the A49 trunk road joins the A40. Being a convenient staging point it has several hotels.
