What was the date of the star hotel fire in 1911? my ancestors ran the eight bells inn, after the fire and wanted a prelude of information to this. (Pitchford)

 

Thank you

Hello Ben

I have spoken to the one person who I thought may know the answer to your question but unfortunately that drew a blank.

I suggest you trawl through the local weekly newspaper, the Wellington Journal, where you should find the information. It shouldn't take too long to go through the weekly editions. They should be available at Shropshire Archives and the Newspaper Library in London.

There is a book about Shifnal by Dr Sylvia Watts which may possibly have the information.

Mike
