Breaking Ground at the Old Black Lion


Work on the 16th century pub has begun after it has been empty since 2018. The pub will be restored and refurbished with the upper level becoming the headquarters of the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT), who run the adjacent 12th Century Grade I Listed church.

Hannah Parham, from the CCT said: “The aim of the project is to restore the Old Black Lion as a pub, open for business and once again serving the local community.

“The revitalised pub could also generate funds for the repair and conservation of St Peter’s Church and to support the work of CCT more broadly, providing the church with a more sustainable future.”
