Books and Stories



Enter the world of Tumblestone Hollow in the wonderful books about Tumblestone Hollow and the people that live written by best-selling author Amy Sparkes and illustrated by Steve Pearce.

The first book, ‘The Legend of Tumblestone Hollow’, is a picture and story book centred around a character called Obsidian – who saves magical stones from harmful shadows, planting them hidden from view, by an ancient Field Maple tree within the beautiful valley of Stonor Park.

The story is centred around the stone circle at Stonor Park which has been a feature within its grounds long before the house was built 850 years ago. These stones were, before the end of the Ice age, part of a stone cap which was crushed by the weight of melting ice, causing the larger stones to tumble down to the valley where they still lie.

Books can be purchased at the Visitor Centre at Stonor, in advance via our ticketing website for collection at Stonor, from The Bell Bookshop in Henley-on-Thames and soon from Amazon.
