Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for 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”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.

Another idea from Dove Cottage

On Monday 13th November, the Today programme on Radio 4 at 7:38 am reported on a recording made by Sir Ian McKellen of "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" for a new exhibition at Dove Cottage, the Wordsworth Museum in the Lake District.

Here is another example of innovative ways in which the Three Cups Hotel could be promoted if it were open for business. How about a recording of Ian McKellen reading "Farmer Giles of Ham" or Brian Blessed reading the part of Tom Bombadil which someone so carelessly left out of the film of Lord of the Rings?
