AN exhibition charting the colourful history of Wotton under Edge's pubs is currently showing at the town's heritage centre.

At one time, there were 46 different hostelries in the town and the display includes photographs of 32 of them.

Janet Walshe, a volunteer at the centre, said: "The exhibition has been very popular, creating a lot of interest and some amazement about how many pubs there used to be in Wotton.

"They are mapped out and it's fascinating to see whereabouts in the town they were, what they looked like and what the buildings look like now.

"Some are shops and businesses, others have been turned into residential dwellings.

"Quite a few visitors, after seeing the exhibition, have walked the pub route around the town with interest."

The exhibition continues at Wotton Heritage Centre until Easter, with a new one in place for May, which will highlight industries in Wotton under Edge.

Wotton at present is served by four much loved pubs, The Royal Oak , The Swan Hotel, The Star and The Falcon.

Photos from Wotton Heritage Centre's collection can be seen on their Facebook page.
