The Crown was originally a stone building. Photos of it are on the Gloucestershire Pub website. Stroud district council has a policy of resisting change of use of public houses where it is the last one in the community. Having spoken to the planner he does not consider Inchbrook to be a community. I disagreed with him as there is a large residential and work community surrounding the pub. The only way to save this building as a pub is to write in and object. There is still time. If there are 5 or more objections then the application will go before the planning committee.

Be quick object now. Quote policy no S15 of the Stroud local plan. Retention of village amenities

I thought that the development was the CFV. If the developer of that thinks that's not a community then the word needs to be redefined!

Looking at the plans for the new building it is rather large. Is this the current trend around these parts now? Separate housing gets the chop and we all live in a tower block!

Very easy and worthwhile.

I was interested in RM's info about a pub website. However, no way could I find it. Does it really show a stone building? if so, at a later date they must have covered up the stone to make it as it is today. CF village is a long walk (for those residents able use it. ) The B and B across the road definitely did not use it. cars must have affectd its custom a lot and more cars are not a good idea.

Try now Betty, although I'm not convinced it is the Crown

I was thinking that a pub that needs to be driven to is never going to do very well in this day and age, however on reflection there are quite a few pubs around these parts that are out of the way and seem to survive.

When the Crown was open, I noticed a regular amount of foot traffic to and from it from Renishaw at lunch time, which I presume would give it 'regular' daytime trade.

1) Renishaws have their own excellent and cheap restaurant on site and I doubt if any staff would use the pub.

2)Pubs are finding it difficult to make money these days as you can buy beer for 50p a pint in supermarkets. people have DVD players, big TVs and they prefer to stay at home more often than go out.

3) There is a pub just up the hill which is surrounded by houses and it is not exactly busy.

4) Passing trade is going to be nil because if you are driving you go past the pub before you realise that it is there.

5) Cars entering and exiting the car park are a real hazard to others on the A46.

6) I would doubt whether any of the people advocating its' return to a pub would put up the money or run it after taking off their rose-tinted specs.

I think you had better shut the road from CFV and the hill one then. Possibly also shut the car dealers.

Thanks ever so Mr(?) "not required." Yes, it does look like stone...then, but not today.

What pleased me most is that there is a long screed on the programme relating to Nailsworth Brewery. I once had it but had lost it. W.G.Clissold (an ancestor of my husband Sidney Newman) was a member of the Baptist chapel. He ran the Sunday School for many years but was never a Deacon. I always thought that he sold the brewery because of his religion. He was a busy public servant(amongst other things responsible for the clock on stilts. ) I concluded that he must have been rich. However, found a letter from his wife to her cousin saying that she was not well but they couldn't afford a docter. She died.

1) Renishaw's restaurant is reasonably priced but not cheap. You can get cheaper comparable meals in some local eateries. You would be surprised how many emplayees leave Renishaw's sites at lunchtime, especially on Fridays.

2)People go to pubs to socialise.

3)True.

4)Not true. Anyhow, "the pub up the road" survives with no such passing trade.

5) No more dangerous than CFV. If the crown was to remain, you must remember it was there first so it may be necessary to make road improvements to reduce risks.

6) Even if the pub can not be resurrected as a viable business, it is important to make every effort to preserve such buildings as they form an important part of out history. Deveopers should not be allowed to flatten good buildings and squeeze new identikit houses in just for a quick buck.

I think that the main objection to this application is the underhand methods that have been used.

utter rubbish, you obviously have not been in there for a long, long time. The Marie Celeste had more people on board.

utter rubbish. They used to go a lot more often but ask most landlords and they will tell you a different story. have you ever run a pub in the last 3 years?

There are 7 days in a week and there are evenings for trade as well. You cannot rely on one day and the price of the meals at Renishaws is not too bad. Going to the pub at lunchtime from work is getting to be a thing of the past if you hadn't noticed.

utter rubbish. The pub has no architectural merit and why do we need to be reminded of the good 'ol drinking days?

Ther eis no chance of running it as a pub, can you not understand this simple point? Would you put money into it and try to survive or put in the huge amount of hours for little or no recompense apart from some history huggers getting a warm feeling that the olde worlde has been kept as it was...and they would probably never use the place aprt from once a year and halves all round, to toast its' 'magnificence'. The Crown was not the busiest of pubs when it was open and things have not got any better over the years.

This nonsense reminds me of a Norfolk village that I used to live in a few years ago. The pub was to be closed down due to lack of trade. A public meeting was attended by over 140 villagers. 90% of them had never been in the pub or used to use the pub in a nearby village and they could not understand why the pub was closing but they did not want to lose their chocolate box history.
