Hello. My name is Barry Sharples and I live in Bosbury. I’m an incomer but
I have learned a lot about the village’s history in particular working with
the local history group, the Bosbury Chroniclers, and the Herefordshire branch of the Victoria
County History project. The information on this website has been assembled by a number of people
whose names you will find recorded on the various pages. Also many thanks to my many correspondents
from all over the world who have helped me add to and amend the information given on a number of subjects.
I must mention the book entitled ‘Bosbury’ recently published by VCH which is available from the Bell pub, local bookshops and online.
I hope you enjoy exploring the rich and varied strands of Bosbury’s history.
You can contact me direct on email at
or if it is simpler via the Facebook page.
Barry Sharples, 2017.
PS I also have a personal Miscellany Website
covering many interests including plants, art, history, days & dates etc.
It also includes a puzzle website called the
Web Puzzle Compendium which contains hours of harmless fun for all ages. These are not games,
there are no time-limits or shoot-ups, sorry - the emphasis is on ingenuity and determination.
PPS As you explore you will discover that six historical typefaces are used in this website.
Lastly this little utility tells you about your computer.
