So the Crown is being scaffolded today. Presumably Enterprise Inns are finally going to do something with it - I wonder what?

Jesus it was owned by a pubco? Surprised they let it fall into such disrepair.

I was told, probably entirely incorrectly, that it was bought by that Brexit loving company Witherspoons.

Not a great deal. It needs huge amounts of work.

It's an important listed building in a very visible location and it's been neglected for years. If you look at the back you can see how much needs doing, without needing to go inside. My guess is that it staggered along until the Premier Inn gave people somewhere decent to stay. It's scandalous really.

I have spoken to the scaffolders team leader PM today and he informs me that it is ONLY the guttering that is being repaired.

Well, that's terrific. So The Crown still stands there rotting away in the middle of the Town, a listed building in one of the most prominent positions on the High Street. Amazing ..... but I suppose the gutters won't leak and drop onto the pavement.

Scaffolding around the Crown
To stop the gutters falling down
When will this - a local gem
Be fit for Lewes once again?
"Not soon enough" the locals cry
The place is painful on the eye
But do not stress, it will be reborn
Although the doubters (full of scorn)
Live their lives in constants fear
That they'll never serve another beer.
Stick around, it'll all be fine
Selling beer, gin and wine
Just remember that from such a low
There's only on way for them to go......

That was pants

Sold by auction Wednesday, builders start Thursday.

Or any time soon? Nope. Ever tried to get planning/improvement permission for a listed building?

This will take some time.

If you lend someone £20 and don't see them again it was probably worth it.
