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 email@example.com 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.
Much to my surprise, I was able to attend the Community Alert on Pubs meeting in Bridport tonight. More news to follow but I would summarise the outcome of the meeting as, of about 150 people in attendance, 100% who voted were for the compulsory purchase of The Three Cups by West Dorset Council and, in a vote on The Swan village pub, 100% were for compulsory purchase.
