We are travelling through country we have visited by car.  And I am learning something about train travel.  It's mesmerising, it's comfortable but it's all about landscape, not detailed discovery.  The railway stations are at the edge of towns.  All we get are tantalising glimpses, no hope of spotting Royal Hotels.  The King's Own Hotel is the nearest I got on the whole trip.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
