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.

More on Blue Plaques

The Wikipedia entry on J.R.R. Tolkien lists 5 blue plaques to date to commemorate places where he lived or stayed.

Wouldn't it be good to see another one in Lyme Regis to let passers by and visitors know that Tolkien stayed at The Three Cups Hotel?

I've just checked on Wikipedia and, according to what is posted there, the count is now SIX but no mention of The Three Cups yet.
