The Angel Inn, 24 Church Street
The Angel Inn, 24 Church Street
A very old inn, which originally was joined to the buildings in Church Street on its left. A very long time ago there was also a building on its right, but that was demolished in the late 18th century for a road to be constructed. Today the inn's main claim to fame, is that it is the host of the Ball Game celebrations, on Shrove Tuesday. The game being a very long tradition in Atherstone, and one of the few such that survives.
