The Wellington Arms has now been converted into a Convenience Store. Although the pub was an archetypal ‘back street spit n sawdust boozer’ it was unique as it retained Godsell’s Brewery etched brewery windows. Godsell’s were based in Salmon Springs in Stroud and the brewery was acquired by the Stroud Brewery Co. in 1928. The windows were amazing survivors.
