Does anyone know the name of the black and white building in Frankwell which has the fire place shop underneath? I am looking for Worralls Mansion; or could it have been where Frankwell Island now is and was moved to the outdoor museum Bromsgrove I think. Any information would be appreciated

Hello Sandra

The Avoncroft Museum web site includes the following information:

"The Tea Room is located in a lovely black and white timbered building with a colourful past.  Originally based in Shrewsbury, it was built as a mansion in 1576 for a rich family, went on to become an inn called “The String of Horses” between 1828 and 1907 and then became the Shrewsbury Co-operative Society."

Whichever building you want it is unlikely that the name will appear on it and I can't find it on large scale maps but Shropshire Archives will almost certainly have maps of an even larger scale than those on the Internet so a visit there may help you.

Thank you Mike. Have now found out that it is the black and white building in Frankwell, almost opposite the former Silverton.
