The Plough pub listed as community asset

The Plough, Sandygate Road

Is The Plough, Sandygate Road

The Plough pub on Sandygate Road has been listed as an asset of community value.

This means that that in the event of it being put up for sale the group lodging the application would be given time to come up with a bid to buy it. There is no guarantee that this bid would be accepted by the seller.

With the rumoured threat of the pub being sold and turned into a convenience store, a group of regulars have launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign. There’s also a Save the Plough Facebook community group which they’ll use to keep everyone up to date.

The Plough is one of three remaining pubs in Crosspool and it is believed that a public house has stood on the site for around 400 years. The pub is famously located opposite Hallam FC’s Sandygate stadium, the oldest football ground in the world.

    Great news and well done to all the campaigners for putting forward a persuasive application. I was glad to be able to support it. This is not the end of the story and, with my colleague Anne Murphy, we are happy to help in any way we can.
