The Friends of the Dymock Poets (FDP) was founded in 1993 to be ‘Friends’ of six poets who had an association with the Dymock area of Gloucestershire, namely Lascelles Abercrombie, Rupert Brooke, John Drinkwater, Robert Frost, Wilfrid Gibson, and Edward Thomas. The FDP promotes and encourages, for the public benefit, knowledge and appreciation of the works and lives of the poets and their families and friends who lived or visited the Dymock area before and during the First World War. It also increases public knowledge and appreciation of the cultural and natural history of the Gloucestershire/Herefordshire/Worcestershire border country.
