Hunting for treasure at Bridgnorth's pubs

By Toby Neal | Bridgnorth | News | Published:

Bridgnorth historian Clive Gwilt is holding a pub treasure hunt in the town which will raise money for the Bridgnorth Historical Society and Bridgnorth Museum.

It runs from May 24 to June 16 – giving those taking part time to visit the 26 pubs – with the clues available from The Golden Lion in the High Street, Bassa Villa in Cartway, or Bridgnorth Museum at Northgate.

The treasure hunt, with a charge of £5 per book of questions, is supported by the Campaign for Real Ale in Bridgnorth, and booklets have to be returned for checking to The Golden Lion by June 17.

Clive said: "The two teams with the most points will win alcohol and meals from some of the establishments."

And Clive will be at Bridgnorth Library on June 1 from 10am to 3pm to sign copies of his new book, Bridgnorth History Tour.
