Welch Gate (upper end)
Welch Gate (upper end)
This is the start of the old and steep road known as Welch Gate, looking towards the town centre. An interesting fact about this road is that at one time one in every six buildings was a public house. Today only two survive, the Woodcolliers Arms, which is round the corner on the right, and the Cafe/Bar at Number 1 Welch Gate, which is at the bottom of the road. Today it isn't easy to identify all the former public houses, but although Welch Gate may have lost so many, Bewdley as a whole retains a surprisingly high number for such a relatively small town.
