Dymock

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Gloucestershire  /  Forest of Dean  /  Dymock
Dymock is a small village in the Forest of Dean district of Gloucestershire, England, about four miles south of Ledbury, with a population of approx. 300 people increasing dramatically to 1,214 at the United Kingdom Census 2011It was the eponymous home of the Dymock poets from the period 1911-1914. The homes of Wilfrid Wilson Gibson and the American-born Robert Frost can still be seen there. Dymock is renowned for its wild daffodils in the spring, and these were probably the inspiration for the line "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood" in Frost's poem The Road Not Taken, which was a gentle satire on his great friend, and fellow Dymock Poet, Edward Thomas. In 2011 the village featured on Countryfile, where the Dymock poets were looked into in more detail.Dymock is the origin of the Dymock Red, a cider apple, and Stinking Bishop cheese.In the village of Dymock there are several interesting buildings which include cruck beam cottages; "The White House", which was the birthplace of John Kyrle - the "Man of Ross" in 1637, Ann Cam School of 1825 and St Mary's Church, a patchwork history in brick and stone with Anglo-Norman origins. Nearby stands the only remaining village pub, which was purchased by Parish Council to help preserve a thriving village. The pub is rented and run by a landlord and supported by a local fundraising and social committee "Friends of the Beauchamp Arms" (FOBA).
