“Hergest Ridge” is a record album, written and mostly performed by Mike Oldfield released in 1974 by Virgin Records. It was Oldfield’s second solo album. He was not comfortable with the public attention that had come from the success of Tubular Bells, and retreated to the English countryside to work on the follow-up. The result was Hergest Ridge, named after the hill on the border of Herefordshire and Wales near where he was living at the time.
