One of the entries in Swindon in 50 Buildings, is The Crumpled Horn pub over in Eldene. That one made the cut – as it were – in part because it had been listed by Historic England. So when I saw the press release that follows, about the Hall & Woodhouse canalside hostelry gaining national recognition for its innovative design, it felt appropriate to include it in this blog series: Swindon in 50 More Buildings.
