The White Horse Inn, Pulverbatch
The Shropshire Hills Shuttle buses were diminished last summer. There was a new service, for Olympic year, from Church Stretton via Acton Scott to Much Wenlock, but the buses no longer served Clun, Craven Arms or Bishop's Castle.
Still, we are promised a service to Ludlow next summer.
I did, of course, make use of the buses while I was in Shropshire. On one Sunday I was able to go into the mines at Snailbeach, have tea at The Bog and still find time for a pint at the White Horse Inn, Pulverbatch.
There were a lot of pub closures in this part of Shropshire a few years ago, but this is one of several to have bucked the national trend and reopened recently. And I can certainly recommend it.
