The Bottle and Glass Inn
Picklescott, Church Stretton, Shropshire
What a lovely name for a village, with in 1204 it was Old English Piklescote, the cottages of Pikel. The pub name is from the 17th century when glass bottles were very much a novelty. Originally, the building was a farmhouse with history from the 16th century, with has ancient beams and open wood fires. The ghost that haunts this handsome, white-painted pub , witnesses see, rather than heard. He is fitted with a wooden leg, with often this tapping limb , commentators have heard, throughout the building. When he is about, there are frequent problems with electrical appliances.
