VCH Herefordshire - VCH Short on the parish of Eastnor

We are pleased to announce the launch of the latest VCH Short paperback. The illustrated book by Dr Janet Cooper on Eastnor, which lies at the southern end of the Malvern Hills in Herefordshire, introduces visitors and residents to the history of the whole parish, from its distinctive landscape to its agriculture, social life and parish church. A special feature by David Whitehead on Eastnor Castle provides much new information on its builders, architects and decorators, including Robert Smirke, the Crace firm and A.W.N Pugin, as well as the creation of its designed landscape  The launch of the book was held at Eastnor Castle, thanks to the generosity of James Hervey-Bathurst, and was very well attended by supporters of the VCH Herefordshire Trust, parishioners, and other local residents. 

This new publication on Eastnor continues the VCH Shorts series . Read more about Eastnor here and purchase your own copy of the book here.
