Barrow cum Denham Parish Council is to seek a meeting with pub chain owners Hawthorn Leisure over the future of the boarded up Weeping Willow pub in Barrow.

Council chairman Graham Judge said he wrote to the company in early August after the council heard it was closing. This week he received a two-sentence reply saying: “We will write again when we are clear about our plans, at present no decision has been made to permanently close the pub.”

Mr Judge said: “We’re concerned because it’s one of the oldest buildings in Barrow and it is now an eyesore right in the middle of the village.”
