Call to arms to save village pub from demolition
The Nelthorpe Arms
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 23 Oct 2017
Drinkers in South Ferriby may have to set up a fighting fund to stop their village local from being demolished.
For local businessman Richard Pike is seeking planning approval to demolish the Nelthorpe Arms on School Lane and build new homes on the site.
The building has stood empty since August last year and Mr Pike is hoping to start demolition on November 1.
The application comes only seven months after South Ferriby Parish Council successfully applied to list the Arms as an asset of community value, giving villagers a chance to buy it – if they can raise the funds.
