Want to know more about Ledbury, its buildings and its history? Then local publisher GHAL Productions has a selection of concise low price books to satisfy your requirements. The series of three books on the ‘Buildings of Ledbury’ offer an insight into the development of the town during Elizabethan, Georgian and Victorian times. As an important market town Ledbury was on the stagecoach routes and hence had a plethora of old coaching inns and of course pubs.



The books ‘Last Orders’ and ‘The Old Coaching Inns of Ledbury’ trace their history and location in the town. How many people know that a working canal once passed through Ledbury? The book ‘Incident at Ledbury Town Wharf’ traces the route of the canal which later became a railway. ‘Early Train to Ledbury’ documents the coming of the railway and its impact on the development of the town. ‘Sketches of Old Ledbury’ is a collection of the drawings of artist Cheryl Davies and includes many of the interesting buildings of the town.

‘Herefordshire Hop Kilns’ is an illustrated guide to these unique agricultural buildings dotted in the landscape around Ledbury whilst book one in the series ‘Signs Into History’ gives a fascinating account of the history of place names in the Ledbury area. Other books in this series cover the whole of Herefordshire. These are ‘Herefordshire, this Magic Land Twixt England & Wales’ (an account of the landscape and fascinating history of the county) ‘Herefordshire Post Boxes’ and ‘Bromyard Windows’.

All books are attractively priced in the £3.50 - £5.00 range and can be ordered direct from GHAL at 5 Biddulph Way, Ledbury, HR8 2HP: telephone 01531 633594 or 07980 273764: email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
