Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Supporting preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and sketched out much of his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, starring Jeremy Irons and Meryl Streep. Please send any postings to me, Andrew Townsend, at afmt@btinternet.com or add a comment. I would like to thank David Moss for his help. For local info and to get involved, see www.savethethreecupshotel.co.uk
