Weedon’s Wanderings 15th October 2018

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a couple living in a tourist hot-spot, must be in want of a visitor to make them look at it.” To hugely mis-quote Pride and Prejudice, it takes fresh eyes to appreciate one’s surroundings, doesn’t it? And our latest visitor led us to find a firm called Severn Cider, a little brewery in a gorgeous old rectory on the riverside. It lies up a narrow lane which opens out onto pretty cottage gardens. The shop is a little cellar at the back of the house, packed with bottles of cider and perry, jars of pickles and - soft toys? Yep, after being offered generous samples we came away clutching bottles and a cute little wild boar toy, very much a native of our Forest of Dean. The friendly owner even cut us a bunch of grapes from his vine.  Boy, were they sweet and juicy!
