Taxi driver offers journey off the beaten track

Ian Hughes 19th Aug, 2018

A TAXI driver from Stratford is now offering a journey through the town’s history.

Kevin Jones has penned a ‘Pocket Guide to Stratford-upon-Avon’ offering visitors a handy guide to Shakespeare’s home town.

And Mr Jones is also convinced it can claim Robin Hood as another famous son based on findings related to the nearby village of Loxley.

The guide offers bitesize information on Stratford’s historic sites including the obvious Shakespeare-related tourists stop-offs, but also places such as Mason’s Croft, the Windmill Inn, and the Old Police Station in Sheep Street.

Mr Jones, who is also chairman of Stratford-upon-Avon Taxi Association, said: “There is nothing like my guide. Other guidebooks tend to be large and packed with detail, and people can never read them as they go round the sites. Mine offers information on sites that people can read in two or three minutes.

The guide, priced £3.95, is available from WH Smith.
