Claverley’s historic pubs have been a popular destination for generations of local residents and visitors for hundreds of years. Of the ‘top, middle and bottom’ pubs in the village, just the first two now remain, the Kings Arms having recently closed after 300 years and been converted to two dwellings.

To celebrate the reopening of The Plough and The Crown in mid-April local civil engineer and artist Alan Reade has created new watercolours of both. They are from a series of 12 produced to generate publicity and funds for Claverley’s famous Church of All Saints which will reopen shortly for visitors again to come to the village, see the unique medieval wall paintings, Saxon font and stained glass . . . and to visit the pubs!

Greetings cards of Alan’s work are available in the Church and in the pubs and the complete range, including tea towels, tin mugs and limited-edition prints can be seen at All profits from sales are donated to the church.
