The new owners Murrays Funeral Directors say the pub had been in decline for more than a decade and no-one had been willing to take it on as a going concern. Renovation work is now well underway to convert it into a funeral parlour, they added.

Villager Phil Watts said a local resident was willing to buy the pub off Murrays for £340,000, but it appears the offer has come too late.
