Hi Richard thank you for you're comments and for taking the time to let us know what Snapes intentions are for this piece of land.

Please don't take this personally Richard but it seems such a shame when a building dating back to the 1790's can be just left to go to rack and ruin and then pulled down as a result.
What's to stop this happening to every histical building in the Grove. Take for instance the Woodman (built 1870) which is presently bored up. What if this buillding is just being left to decay inside also waiting for the bulldozers to move in.

I thought all our old historical buildings where listed and as such had some sort of protection from this happening. Which public houses in the Grove are listed buildings, do we know. I've never been a pub goer but I wouldn't like to see too many of our local historical buildings going the same way (through no fault of there own)

I feel that these buildings are such a large part of the Grove's history and give the Grove charactor and as such should be maintained and protected and not just bulldozed down when they are not seen to be fit for purpose.

As much as new building are all very nice and offer more up to date facilities they can't bring with them a rich colourful past and the beauty that only our historical buildings can offer.
