IMG 2004Peterborough Arms listed as an Asset of Community Value

Great news!  The Trust has just been told that our application to list the Peterborough Arms
at Dauntsey Lock as an Asset of Community Value has been granted!  The pub was recently
closed by the owners Wadworth Brewery, who have applied for permission for a change of
use from licensed premises to private dwelling.  The Trust believes that the pub, one of only
two remaining canal-side pubs, can have a future as the focus of the canal in the area, as
well as being a focus for the community.


We now have a window of a few months to consider our next steps which could include
making an offer to buy the pub, and making something of it.  The Council of Management will be working on our plans,
in partnership with others who see the value of the pub as a social centre.

But the whole Trust and community will have to get behind the effort if we are to make a success of it. 
Contact us with your thoughts, suggestions, and offers of help.

The Trust is seeking help to save the Peterborough Arms at Dauntsey Lock .

Wiltshire Council has just received a planning application to convert the Peterborough Arms Public House to a
private dwelling.
The Trust believes that this building should remain as a Public House as it will be one of the key attraction
alongside the restored canal. The Trust is currently applying for the building to become an asset of community value
It would help if there was a large response to the current planning application objecting to the change of use.
