A fresh look at Whitchurch.

16 Sep

We travel around Whitchurch frequently. On our way to other destinations we use the bypass and miss out this lovely little town which is local to us. On Friday we literally went to town and parked (eventually) just outside the High Street and had a really good look around. It’s a canal town, situated on the Llangollen to Whitchurch route. There is a campsite near Grindley Brook where we have stayed on at least one occasion. There is an excellent canal side cafe on the opposite side of Grinley Brook to the town too.

The two or three antiques shops were vastly outnumbered by at least ten public houses. No wonder that early in the year the town held a charity pub crawl. Could you stand the pace?

There was the usual cluster of charity shops but lots of traditional butchers, bakers and gift shops. The town still has a traditional “feel”. With a choice of restaurants and pubs, it must be good for a night out. Just off the High Street is a tree shaded pavement cafe area where you can people watch over a coffee or something stronger. A great place to visit.
