In 1909 a small fleet of timber lighters were beached at Purton to strengthen the eroding canal bank. Known locally as the Purton Hulks, the graveyard is the largest of its kind in Britain at 81 vessels. The site has no legal protection so the Friends were formed to secure the remains of these archaeological treasures. Regular tours of the site take place from March to November.

Gloucestershire Information Family & Local History - Friends of the Dymock Poets

Dymock

In the years leading up to the First World War, literary history was being made around the village of Dymock. Six poets were walking and talking, reading and writing here between May Hill in Gloucestershire and the Malvern Hills in Herefordshire. They were: Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, John Drinkwater, Robert Frost, Wilfrid Gibson and Edward Thomas. The FoDP celebrate the lives and work of these poets and their relationship with the Dymock area.

Gloucestershire is rich in Christmas carols that have come to us through the oral tradition. For example “The Holly and the Ivy” and “The Gloucestershire Wassail” are known and sung worldwide, but these well-known carols varied within Gloucestershire from place to place. These variations have been collected and are detailed on this site, with manuscripts and recordings, in order to keep the songs alive for future generations. Also fascinating facts about Mummers Plays and Wassailing in Gloucestershire.
