Dor Knap
Its History & Toc H Life
ISBN-13: 9780954919603

Known as "The House on the Hill", this is the story of a building that endured through history until its patronage by the Toc H charity.

 

After exploring the fascinating history of Broadway, Worcestershire and the Tower with its diverse occupants, a large house called Dor Knap was first acquired by the Toc H movement in 1959, needing ‘sympathetic modernisation’. But this led to an upsurge of enthusiasm that made it a place of tranquillity, engendering caring practical leadership. Physical and mental energy was stretched beyond imagination and people from all walks of life formed deep lasting friendships in a common cause that remains today.
