Braintree: Pub to reopen after more than two years
8:00am Saturday 16th February 2013 in News
A village pub that residents campaigned to keep save is to re-open.
The Bull in Blackmore End, Wethersfield, closed in October 2010 and more than 700 people opposed a planning application to convert it into a house.
Braintree Council turned down the application and villagers Belinda and Colin Coleman have now acquired the pub.
The couple have set up a project team with other residents and are working on restoring the Grade II listed building.
Planning applications have been made to replace dilapidated buildings at back with a new extension, replace the bar and fit new windows.
