Mary Cole, Countess of Berkeley
by Hope Costley-White
A fascinating read. This is a true story of Mary Cole, daughter of a Gloucester tradesman, who was duped into a form of marriage by the Fifth Earl of Berkeley, a prominent member of the Prince Regent's circle. As a result, she endured years of ostracism and insults. By sheer force of character, she secured a legal marriage and by skilful managment brought prosperity to the family estates.
"Able and sympathetic biography - a lively chapter of family history from which Lady Berkeley emerges as a woman of beauty, courage and ability." Sunday Telegraph

Gloucestershire's Forgotten Battle - Nibley Green 1470
by Peter Fleming
An illustrated history of the Battle of Nibley Green, reputedly the last private battle on English soil, and a dramatic episode of the Wars of the Roses.
On 20th March 1470, at Nibley Green, the young hothead Viscount Lisle was killed fighting his mortal enemy, William, Lord Berkeley. Lisle's death did not end the dispute, which continued in the law courts, making it the longest running case in English legal history.
