Pigs Heads, Trotters and Tails of West Street
Saturday 9 October
Meet at Warwick Visitor Information Centre, Jury Street
12noon – 1.30pm
A 90-minute walking tour with Historic Warwick Walks tour guide Paula Fletcher, exploring the history of West Street.
Now a peaceful, tree-lined entrance into Warwick, with a number of charming medieval houses, in 1830 West Street was described as ‘wide and airy with low houses inhabited by the working classes’.
Learn about the medieval gruesome warning to travellers at the town entrance; the generous sisters; the tannery; the brawn maker; the many public houses; the neo-Gothic Catholic Church, built by a son of Augustus Pugin, where J R R Tolkien married Edith Bratt ... and many more stories of the past contained in the buildings along Warwick’s West Street.
There are limited places available for this walk. Please book in advance through the Box Office on 01926 33 44 18
