DRUNKEN BIDFORD, GUY'S CLIFF AND COMPTON WYNYATES

DRUNKEN BIDFORD, GUY'S CLIFF AND COMPTON WYNYATES

Down stream from Stratford lies Bidford (top) with its quaint church and famous " Falcon " Inn, where Shakespeare had his adventure with the "Bidford Society of Sippers," which ended in the composition of the famous doggerel. Guy's Cliff Mill (bottom left) is about a mile and a half out of Warwick on the Coventry road and dates from Saxon times. Compton Wynyates (bottom right) dates from Henry VII, and an adventure of William Compton, the Elizabethan owner, suggested the linen basket episode in "The Merry Wives."
