Work has started on demolishing a North Lincolnshire village local which has stood empty for three years.
When flattened the Railway Inn at Barnetby will be converted into new homes.
In 2016 owner Lewis Dillon, who bought the site at an auction from Enterprise Inns. announced plans to re-open the pub with a 60- cover restaurant.
The demolition will leave drinkers in Barnetby with a single pub – the Whistle and Flute.
The current railway inn was opened in around 1912 but the site dates back to the mid 19th century.
