Work starts on The Wayfarer
Work has started on the empty Wayfarer pub on The Filleybrooks – and it could be open again in 12 weeks’ time.
The pub has been empty for around 18 months and in January this year thieves broke in and stripped it of pipes, wiring and a boiler. But it could be open again in time for Christmas.
Owner Enterprise Inns got planning permission to make structural changes to the building – including a new canopy to the existing entrance and new mock mansard roofs to replace existing flat ones – from Stafford Borough Council at the end of August.
Permission was also granted to install solar panels in the roof.
