The Ship Inn was built c. 1750 and was part of the Thames & Severn canal complex.  A central porch has been added and window frames have been replaced with UVPC double glazing but the Ship Inn still has a traditional looking exterior. The free standing  pub sign is housed in the original iron-work which features the ‘castle’ trade-mark associated with the old Cheltenham Brewery/ West Country Ales.
