Stoke Golding Avoids Bermuda Triangle

As you can see on this map, Stoke Golding isn’t too far away from Bermuda and the infamous Bermuda Triangle.

For many years, there have been urban myths and stories of mysterious disappearances from ships and planes entering The Bermuda Triangle.

This is very much North American territory of course and rumours that Russ has taken some of these vessels due to poor grammar being located on board are, as yet, unconfirmed.

Warwickshire’s very own version of the Bermuda Triangle Nuneaton, Bedworth and Atherstone works in the opposite way.

Anyone found leaving these three towns is unlikely to want to return and there have been a quite a few escapees over the years (apologies to my Warwickshire readers!)

One such town where (Nuneaton/Beduff/Atherstun) Bermuda Triangle escapees reach is Stoke Golding, just over the border in Leicestershire.

Whilst it’s not a renowned name amongst historians, it has an excellent historic claim to fame in that in 1485, villagers witnessed the rural coronation of the first Tudor monarch, Henry VII after beating Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field.

As such, it is suitably middle England and has a pub clientele to match at 426 – The George And Dragon CV13 6EZ.

I popped in on a Thursday night and it felt like a Church End Tap House with plenty of their beers on and even Rich likes a couple of their ales so it must be good…

There were plenty of well to do gentlefolk enjoying beer and wine and the conversations were in full flow.

Brewer’s Truth (Church End) was in good form and it was an old school style  two boozer with two rooms, a snug and a bar along with lots of knick knacks and bric a brac all over the place.

(great beer garden view)

However, it looked incredibly well kept and pristine confirming that Church End do a good job with their boozers and this one appears to be ticking along nicely.

The boozer about 50 yards away appeared to have a lot more outside smokers and Hi-viz jackets but The George And Dragon will continue to attract Bermuda Triangle escapees for many years to come

    I’m assuming you mean the UK version of said triangle? 😉

    “and rumours that Russ has taken some of these vessels due to poor grammar being located on board are, as yet, unconfirmed.”

    I can neither confirm nor deny. 🙂

    “Warwickshire’s very own version of the Bermuda Triangle Nuneaton, Bedworth and Atherstone works in the opposite way.”

    I knew it was the UK version.

    “Anyone found leaving these three towns is unlikely to want to return”

    (slow golf clap)

    “in 1845, villagers witnessed the rural coronation of the first Tudor monarch, Henry VII after beating Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field.”

    I know of Bosworth but didn’t know it’s whereabouts geographically.

    Oh, and shouldn’t that be 1485, not 1845? 😉

    “(bike on pub wall a memorial to my recent Willington/Alrewas attempt)”

    LOL! 🙂

    “The boozer about 50 yards away”

    Good guess. 154 feet according to Google.

    Cheers

    PS – “n old school style two roboozer with two rooms”

    Not sure what a roboozer is. Is that like a pub roomba for cleaning the floors after closing? 😉

  2. As a frequent reader of these pub blogs it never fails to amaze me how different the pubs are from post to post. Dramatically different people, décor and ambiance. Really great.
