<Market House, Ledbury>

   Ledbury is a market town with a timeless, unhurried quality about it. Rich in history it existed as an early Saxon settlement before being described as Liedeberge (Leadon Hill) in the Domesday Book.

 

   It has excellent examples of Norman, Tudor, Georgian and Victorian architecture and a history that includes the Battle of Ledbury (1645) and the Turnpike Riot (1735).

<Eastnor Castle>
Ledbury has excellent accommodation with hotels filled with history, inns full of tradition and quality bed and breakfasts. There is also self catering accommodation, campsites and even 'glamping' in the heart of the countryside.
<Malvern Hills>

   Rising from the Vale of Leadon, Ledbury is nestled beneath the ancient Malvern Hills - a major local attraction.


   From the Malverns, Marcle Ridge and May Hill the three counties roll out before you with undulating hills, broadleaf and conifer woods, orchards of apples and pears, winding country lanes and picturesque black and white villages and hamlets.

   
Poetry is of great cultural and historical significance to Ledbury. Poet Laureate John Masefield (1878 - 1967) was born and raised in Ledbury and wrote about its life and traditions. Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806 - 1861) was one of the most prominent poets of the Victorian era and lived on the outskirts of Ledbury at Hope End.
 
<William Langland>

 It is thought medieval poet William Langland (pictured left at St. Mary the Virgin, in Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire) was born in Ledbury. He is famous for his C14th poem Piers Plowman - a veiled, subversive attack on clerical and political corruption, thought to have been an inspiration for the Peasant's Revolt of 1381.

 

William’s Vision of Piers Plowman

 

 

   Famously the Dymock Poets - Robert Frost, Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, Edward Thomas, Wilfrid Wilson Gibson, John Drinkwater and Eleanor Farjeon - lived in the Dymock area intermittently from 1911 to 1914 and were greatly inspired by local countryside.

 

   The Ledbury Poetry Festival (held every July) is England's premier poetry festival with national and internationally acclaimed poets alongside local poets, workshops, walks and exhibitions.
