The Gaskell Arms Hotel, High Street, Much Wenlock, Shropshire
Saturday / Sunday 20/21 June 2015
An old coaching inn, bits of which date back to the seventeenth century, although the current frontage is late eighteenth century. It has still got a bit of a coaching inn feel to it, situated at a busy crossroads in this lovely old town which, somewhat bizarrely, claims to be the birthplace of the modern Olympic movement. We spent the night there and after a pint or three of Wye Valley Butty Bach I wasn't sure if I was going to wake up to find my Toyota Auris in the car park or a coach and team of six. It was, I am pleased to report, the former rather than the latter.
