A very sensitive reinvention of a fine Victorian pub. This redundant pub has stood empty for several years. This scheme will deliver 18 dwellings within the existing pub and new extension. At ground floor level, the historic bar areas will be left open and visible, preserved for community use as a Business & Training Centre. Bringing this building back into economic use enables the crumbling facades to be restored to their former glory, so this old lady of the East End can stand proud once more.
