The John Masefield Society maintains an archive and library in The Master's House in Ledbury, Herefordshire.

The archives include some significant series of letters from Masefield in addition to the research archive of Masefield's biographer, Constance Babington Smith.

The extensive library holds works by and about John Masefield. There are many limited signed editions, inscribed copies and other rare editions. There are also a number of books from Masefield's own library.

Although the Society has no budget for acquisitions we are always extremely grateful to receive material.

For all enquiries about our holdings and access please contact the archivist, Dr Philip W. Errington (email:
