‘A man who noticed such things.’


Your personal invitation to discover the books of one of England’s first conservationists and one of our best country writers...
The purpose of this website is to introduce to you the writing of John Moore, hopefully to whet your appetite to read more, and to offer you the best opportunity to do so, by joining the Society dedicated to his work and his memory.
  John Moore lived and wrote with wit, insight and affection about Tewkesbury and its surrounding villages, as well as producing a number of successful novels. He was one of our first environmentalists, whose views on the subjects of conservation, pollution and land management are as relevant today as when he expressed them in the 1950s. His legacy includes the fascinating ‘John Moore Countryside Museum’ in Tewkesbury, which is closely associated with the Society - you can visit their website here.
Take a look around our site and if you like what you see, consider joining the Society. Membership details are shown on the ‘Contacts’ page and we hope you’ll join us.
  Sir Compton Mackenzie said of John Moore:
“The best writer about the English countryside and its life, human or otherwise. that we have… His pen is as fresh as the trees in May.”
