Herbert was an associate of the Ditchling community (Eric Gill, Hilary Pepler, David Jones and others who formed the Guild of St. Joseph and St. Dominic) and a follower of Hilaire Belloc, G. K. Chesterton and other distributists.
An influence on the Catholic Land Movement, he advocated a middle way between socialism and liberalism in a 'return to the land'. This conservative agrarianism eventually led him towards a flirtation with the reactionary right in the mid-1930s. His life and writings, however, provide an opportunity for reflection on the 'inconvenient history' of interwar ruralist/ecological movements in the 1930s within their entangled contexts of cultural despair and extremes of Englishness.

1940 awarded the O.B.E. for his work routing shipping convoys during WW2.
