Did you know that for a brief period before WWI Dymock near Ledbury could call itself the epicentre of new English poetry? Rupert Brooke moved there in 1913, as later in the year did the American Robert Frost; Lascelles Abercrombie had been the first artistic arrival in the village two years earlier; John Drinkwater came with Brooke; and Wilfrid Gibson and Edward Thomas completed the group.
