Somewhere to live has a bigger social priority than another pub

If it doesn't stay as a pub, it can easily be converted to a home. There really is no justification for pulling down a perfectly serviceable building such as that. I'm surprised demolition is even allowed in the first place!

House builders around here need pulling back a little otherwise the area will just be one huge ugly sprawling housing estate and the whole point of living around here will be gone for ever.

So this is the problem from the two different points of view...

CRYSTAL FOUNTAIN : They bought the premises and are free to do with their purchase as they wish. In this case, build much needed flats for the area.

Anybody with a romantic dream that the pub would possibly be viable is misleading themselves, as it was losing money before they bought it, otherwise why was it sold?

The development deal involves improving the stretch of road around it.

SAVE THE CROWN ; The Crown was and could be a going concern and an important asset to the community given half a chance, a community already short of pubs and full of houses that makes traffic impossible now.. This historic building was never given a chance by the developers to work as a pub, just left to fall to pieces.

Several people have expressed an interest to take on the runnign of the premises with a new style of management and facilities.

A road should always be maintained in optimum conditions by the local council, irrespective of whether the pub is demolished or not.

Well I think those are all the points covered.

Sorry RR I can't agree with you there. A hundred year old building is not really that ancient when you compare it to some other buildings in and around Nailsworth which really are old and rightly deserve to be listed as such. Cleaver House at the bottom of Butcher hill lane is a prime example of local heritage.

As the building stands today based on its construction would say 15O tops.But worthwhile a check.

Well summed up Steed. That captures the situation perfectly. I am on the Crown side of the fence and have registered my objection- the destruction of part of our history for some soulless flats just doesn't seem right to me. There are already flats for older people being built in Nailsworth itself and out of interest, I wonder if all the flats in CFV have been occupied? Before we have a wholesale outbreak of flats for older people would it not be better to see if all the existing ones get sold first?

BTW Sinnikal, PLEASE could you put the kitten picture to rest once and for all? It was funny the first time but its frequent presence to wind up your opponents is beginning to grate somewhat. What about a nice fluffy bunny pic instead? Or alternatively a grumpy old toad...

In reply to RR.

The Tunpike road that ran past it was constructed in 1781.

The Crown Inn was originally a house which adjoined an older mill building and looks to be in the 1840s style of other houses built locally at that time.

Brilliant old photo. I have given it a little adjustment. Not sure if it's any better though. I would have never realised that there was an old mill in that location!

What lovely pics. But now there is a high bank which stops at the garden of the house next door. How does that fit in to the pic - or is it simply out of sight?

Great 'photos, Wozie and Barking.

It seems logical that there would be mills there because of the power source from the stream which runs down the steep-sided valley from Woodchester Mansion/Nympsfield.

What has happened to the factories which used to be behind the Crown? Molyneux Railclips was one of them. Were they demolished to make way for Crystal Fountain Village?

I absolutely agree with you NR, you're completely right. Britain has a shortage of houses and we need cheaper and better accommodation. But why in a town that is already choked up with traffic and unable to cope with more? Why the desperate need to tear down a nice old pub (and it would be nice if properly restored) instead of a little bit of forethought and building houses in a different place?

Stupid question really... why Nailsworth?
