Parts of iconic Ribchester pub sold off as homes
3:07pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
SECTIONS of an iconic former pub are being sold off as properties, more than six years after it closed.
Plans were approved in 2010 by Ribble Valley Borough Council to covert The De Tabley Arms, near Ribchester, to six properties, and two have been sold so far.
Manchester insolvency firm Tomlinsons was appointed the administrator of the building’s owners, E W Properties, in 2007.
Specialist pub management company Daisy Chain Inns Ltd was brought in to ensure the pub continued trading, but soon withdrew, and the building was placed on the market for £2.2million.
The pub, which also includes a patch of land which used to be home to Ribchester Cricket Club, was built in the 19th century by the De Tabley family. In 2005, plans to change the venue, near the banks of the River Ribble, into a holiday centre were given the go-ahead.
But the proposals for 30 new guest bedrooms, along with 206 parking spaces and a function suite, were shelved.
