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.

Books: The Fairy Ring of Commerce, Flee to the Fields: The Faith and Works of the Catholic Land Movement, The Catholic Land Movement: It's Motives and It's Aims and Methods, Distributist Perspectives: Volume I,
Distributist Perspectives: Volume II: Essays on the Economics of Justice and Charity

Decorated for action in the Royal Navy submarine service in the Great War, he was re-mobilised in World War II and died of privations suffered in West Africa.
1917 awarded the D.S.O. for successfully getting his submarine through the Dardanelles during WW1.
1940 awarded the O.B.E. for his work routing shipping convoys during WW2.
