Short post from a Wetherby car park.
Hands up who knew where Jackfield is?
On the Saturday I persuaded Mrs RM out for a jaunt round Jackfield before we headed south.
The little map you get with Search for Sites tells you where to go to park your campervan, but fails to highlight the pubs.
What use is that?
WhatPub finds about 2.7 pubs per resident, not bad.
Nearly all of them have been in the Guide over the years, even if its B & B and Sea Bass rather than Banks’s they focus on now.
You’ll remember the floral display at the Black Swan from February’s visit.
Folk come here for museums, craft shops, cake and toilet stops. We needed the latter.
Never did see the Boat or the Shakespeare, as the merest drop of rain had Mrs RM scurrying for cover.
I also needed cough sweets to take the edge of the homebrew beer I’d inevitably face later, so we walked back to the bridge,
and bought aniseed and cough candy in the shop near the Coracle.
Gorgeous, and we’d somehow already done the 10k steps for a day that justifies our next pub stop.
