Fears For Future Of Kes Pub

Monday March 25 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


THE licensee of the Cudworth pub where part of the film Kes was shot fears the iconic building could be knocked down.

The Pontefract Road pub - owned by Enterprise Inns - was put up for sale two weeks ago.

Licensee Adele Sellars says she's worried the building could be knocked down after having her own bid for the pub refused.

"It's the landmark of Cudworth," she said.

"It's scary to think that in six months' time it could be knocked down in favour of new houses or a supermarket that people don't want."

The 48-year-old took over the pub in October, and the pub wasn't in the best of states having been closed for five months.

Adele says finding out her bid had been refused was very upsetting.

"I will keep it open until the end, but when people know that a pub is closing they tend to go elsewhere."

Hmmmm...decent sized building, good sized car park. Wonder if they have one of the supermarkets lined up to buy it to open as a mini market. I wonder.

the school was the iconic building. no one cared about that being knocked down. why should anyone care about a pub that was in the film for about 2 minutes?
