Your chance to learn more about town’s ‘oldest building’


A historian will be on hand at the Ancient Ram Inn’s Open Day this weekend to answer visitors’ questions about the historic building.

This Saturday, August 26th, the Ancient Ram Inn will be open to visitors from 11am-4pm. Volunteer and historian, Andy Shurmer will be on hand to talk to visitors about the 12th century former pub in Wotton-under-Edge, believed to be the town’s oldest building.

“He’s writing a book about the Ram’s history, its hauntings (finding info about who died in the Ram and when), tunnels AND Wotton’s history. He’s been working with me for 12 months – he’s got a Batchelor’s degree in Celtic History,” explained Caroline Humphries, owner of the Ancient Ram Inn.
