Gerard Manley Hopkins [1844-89] was an unknown poet and Jesuit priest when he visited his family’s new home in Haslemere in August 1887. Two years later he was dead and his Memorial window was placed in St Bartholomew’s Church – nearly thirty years before publication of his collected poems.

Katherine Jessel’s detailed research puts Gerard’s visit into context and reveals the remarkable Hopkins family’s sixty-six years in Haslemere. St Bartholomew’s Church, £5
