Tour and Tourist Information Guide for the Market town of Dymock in the County of Gloucestershire

Little is known of the pre-Roman history of the village of Dymock, but it is believed that the fertile land around Dymock provided much of the fresh produce required by the Roman fortress of Glevum (Gloucester). There is a further gap during the Saxon period and the Middle Ages until we reach the point where Dymock is mentioned in the Doomsday Book and at that time there were 68 males living in the village. Much has been recorded since that time.

The last remaining village pub was put on the market in the 1990's and, rather than have a purchaser buy it for conversion to residential property as had happened with other Parish pubs, the Parish Council decided to buy it for the community. It is now one of the few Parish owned pubs in the country. Hopefully, once the mortgage is paid off, any profits will help reduce the Parish precept of the Council Tax. It, along with the neighbouring Parish Hall, is the centre of community life and has its own support group, Friends of the Beauchamp Arms.

The Village Green outside St. Mary's Church and beside the Beauchamp Arms is the centre for the village's outdoor celebrations. They have an annual Barbecue each July and in august there is a Proms Night, and a Tug-of-War between village teams.
