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.

Well Done, Wellworths

What good news about Claire Robertson reopening the former Woolworth's store in Dorchester under the name Wellworths! She recognised the potential of the store and the market for its product lines even though the former owners closed it down.

I wish her and her colleagues every success with their new venture.

Let's hope someone or some group with a similar entrepreneurial spirit will come forward to reopen The Three Cups Hotel. Perhaps that will be an inspiration to others to reopen some of the closed village pubs in Dorset or vice versa.
