Visit to Tanners Cellars

The Friends first visit in 2023 was to the wine merchants, Tanners, in Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury. We were taken for a tour of the cellars and back-room offices of the ancient buildings and shown many pieces of equipment and storage used over the preceding 3 centuries.

We were welcomed by staff with a glass of champagne and the three leaders Alix, Jo and Howard guided us through the labyrinth of cellars and spoke of the company’s development.

The building itself was fascinating with evidence of 15th century beams which themselves would have been ancient when first put in place. On some beams were carpenters marks and even ‘witches marks’ apparently burned in place centuries ago. Many thanks to Tanners and their staff for a truly interesting and eye-opening visit.
