In 1966 the Sunday Times Colour Supplement asked John Bulmer to create a photo essay on the quintessential English village. After searching the whole of England, Pembridge in Herefordshire proved to be the most 'English' setting. Pembridge met all requirements, which included 'must include a butcher', 'must include a baker', along side many others.
A Very English Village the photobook brings together this extensive and early colour social documentary photography of Pembridge, both the people and the place.
