Little Book of Shropshire Campaign

The Queer Old Dean

The ability of the Reverend Spooner to get his words tupsy-torvy was legendary. His dinner toast to Victoria, "our dear old Queen", for example, came out quite, quite differently. Could it be that the unfortunate cleric's tounge-tied state can be explained by his Shropshire roots? There are numerous fine pubs and local brews to be sampled around the county, many of which would have been familiar to the Reverend.

Naturally, you don't have to be in holy orders to stay 'til last orders. This abundance of alcoholic refreshment may also explain why Shropshire has so many fine hotels, B&Bs and other establishments dedicated to the art of 'sleeping it off'.

Shipshore anyone? Our brochure is full of wise words, take a reverent look here.
