Social: Lamb, Bilsham / Black Horse, Binsted

Social, starting at the Lamb, Bilsham, at 8:45. Then on to the Black Horse, Binsted.

As the developer has won an appeal against refusal of planning permission to demolish the Lamb and build yet more houses, this could well be the last social we’ll be able to hold there — if they haven’t already closed it by that point, of course!

Bad news for Bilsham: the Lamb looks doomed

It looks like curtains for the Lamb, Bilsham — Punch Taverns and the property developer have won their appeal against Arun District Council’s refusal of planning permission to demolish the pub and build 14 houses on the site.

It looks likely that the pub will close as soon as the sale has been completed, with demolition following shortly afterwards, leaving Bilsham with no pubs.

It wasn’t that many years ago that the Yapton/Bilsham area had four pubs; coupled with the previous loss of the Shoulder of Mutton & Cucumbers, there will now be just two: the Olive Branch, and the Maypole.
