There have been very few books concerned solely with Bosbury with the notable exception of Rev. Samuel Bentley’s A Short Account of the Church, Episcopal Manor, and Other Objects of Interest in Bosbury, Herefordshire written in 1881 and History and description of the parish of Bosbury, in the diocese and county of Hereford written in 1891. Having said that, here are extracts from various guide books, history books and articles arranged in date order.
