Inkberrow


Inkberrow

Inkberrow is a village in the borough of Redditch, Worcestershire that is often thought [http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/09/02/narcher102.xml] to be the model for Ambridge, the setting of the BBC Radio 4 long running radio serialisation or soap opera "The Archers". In particular 'The Bull', the fictional Ambridge pub, is supposed to be based on a very real pub, The Old Bull, in Inkberrow. It is at this historic public house or wayside inn, a black and white half-timbered building, that William Shakespeare is reputed to have stayed while on his way to Worcester to collect his marriage certificate.

The village and parish church is dedicated to St. Peter [http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/553274] .
