Situated on the Herefordshire/Gloucestershire border rural Gorsley is rich with social history. Now a thriving community benefiting from the M50 junction, the hamlets that combined to make the village first began to blossom in 1819 when they received their first teacher/pastor, thanks to the generosity of Edward Goff's estate.
Soon after this date, the area began to lose the notorious titles of "Heathen's Heath" and "The Republic of the Lawless".
