during the early hours of Wednesday 10th November 2004, fire broke
out in the ancient Rosswyn Hotel. Damage was extensive on the
ground floor but fortunately hotelier, Rose Livesey and her residents
escaped unhurt. The cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
ghoulish photography of an extremely sad happening such as this
is not what Wyenot.com is about but I realize that everybody is
wondering about the state of the ancient wooden carvings in the
rear bar area, so I have published just one photograph below to
give an idea of the resulting damage.
sympathy goes out to Rose and her staff and we hope the hotel
is able to get back on its feet again very soon.
