The Friends of The Master’s House welcome you

The Master’s House is home to Ledbury’s Library and much more. It has Ledbury’s Community Resource Area where you can find out what’s been going on, get information on forthcoming events, explore local oral histories and, of course, understand more about the history of this extraordinary building.

The Master’s House has been at the heart of Ledbury life for more than 500 years.

It started life as a home for the Master of St Katherine’s Hospital. Successive occupants altered The Master’s House to suit their own needs. The building you see today is the product of all those changes.

It was most recently restored and redeveloped between 2011 and 2015 so it could return to its place at the centre of the community.
