History of Stratford upon Avon
There are many places in Britain that have plenty of history and Stratford-upon-Avon is most definitely one of them! Stratford-upon-Avon is a stunning historic town in Warwickshire well known today for its markets and tourism which was made popular in the 19th Century. Stratford has some incredible architecture and one of the most popular visitor attractions is the birthplace home of poet William Shakespeare who was born here in 1564 to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden.
Discovered by the Saxons and the Celtics back in the year 1196, Stratford upon Avon has been known to have had many battles of a different kind from fires in 1594 perishing at least a fifth of the population and again in 1595 perishing the other half of town, to the deadly plague in 1564 and again also in 1645. It is no wonder then, that this quaint market town holds many reports of ghosts and hauntings!
Henley Street, Stratford upon Avon, is the street you’ll find the house that is still standing of William Shakespeare’s Birthplace. This historic building is now a visitors and Exhibition Centre devoted to the extraordinary life of Shakespeare, visitors to Stratford must take a stroll down Henley Street, look out for the Plaque on Shakespeare’s house and whilst you’re there take a look to the side of the house for a place called “The Creaky Cauldron” – the enchanted manor magic alley as it is now known. The Creaky Cauldron, at 21 Henley street, originally formed part of the infamous White Lion Inn. In 1750 John Payton purchased the original building which dated back to 1541 (the time of Shakespeare’s birth) Renovation work was carried out and completed by a builder from Birmingham and was enlarged greatly in 1753. The White Lion Inn was considered, in its heyday, to be one of the best establishments outside of London. In 1806 the Prince Regent ( George IV) stayed here. Records also record that during the English Civil War, the building was taken over by parliamentary soldiers. The White Lion Inn was then passed down to his son “John Payton” and passed down to his son also called “John Payton”!….The good times seemed to end as the younger “John” sadly didn’t rise to the prosperous future of the people and the building was sold to “Thomas Arkell” in 1823.
