Little Book of Shropshire Campaign

Knight, Knight

King Arthur, say the locals, was born, lived and died in Shropshire. No, really. Perfectly sane academics make the case that he was actually a king of the Votadini tribe. They did their pillaging and what-not around Viroconium, close to modern Wroxeter. He married a local girl , too. The good lady Guinevere - or Ganhumara - came from Oswsestry.

Although there is no record of where they held their wedding reception, it's safe to assume that it was somewhere around here. The tradition continues today. It appears that huge numbers of modern couples find that Shropshire's romantic landscapes, stately homes, fine hotels and suchlike give their nuptials a legendary quality too.
