Plans resubmitted to give spectacular new look to North Lincolnshire pub

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 11 Jun 2018

Bosses at the Old Mill Brewery have re-submitted their plans to give a spectacular new look to a North Lincolnshire pub.

Brigg Town Council and North Lincolnshire Council rejected initial proposals to spruce up the exterior of the Lord Nelson Hotel, feeling they were not in keeping with a conservation area.

But the Snaith-based brewery owners have argued the existing signs, due to their age and condition, do not support the refurbishment of the Nelson, in Brigg's Market Place.

They feel their proposals will retain the key features of the building and keep a link to the historic pub name.

Planners have also been told: "The sympathetic, yet impactful, scheme we have proposed is in keeping with the traditional pub feel, but will also elevate the surrounding street scene with a slightly more contemporary appearance."

The owners want to place 10 new signs, replacing six lanterns and four floodlights.

The initial application, which was submitted in February, came as a major internal refurbishment of the pub was carried out, which saw plush carpets and furnishings installed.

The Lord Nelson, which has a number of guest rooms, is grade two listed and occupies a prominent location in the Brigg Conservation Area, close to the landmark Buttercross with its distinctive clock tower.

It is the Old Mill Brewery's only outlet in a market town renowned for its pubs.

The Lord Nelson is named after the legendary admiral who led the Navy to victory over the French and Spanish fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
