Plan lodged to fix crash damaged window at Spalding’s Ye Olde White Horse

A planning application has now been lodged in a bid to get permission to fix a damaged window at the historic Ye Olde White Horse pub.

The window has been boarded up at the landmark Church Street site in Spalding since a crash in November – marring one of the town’s most picturesque locations.

RN Wooler and Co has now applied for listed building consent to install replacement hardwood timber windows and replace a displaced steel l-beam with an oak alternative.

A design and access statement submitted by Chris Wright on behalf of the firm stated: “The proposals will restore the external look of the building from the road side from its current damaged state following the vehicle collision.

“Our proposals have been carefully considered so as to not impact on the existing aesthetic or integrity of the building. We are re-using existing materials where possible and the new replacement window is to match the same style and from the same materials as the damaged existing.

“There are no new structures nor changes to the buildings external or internal walls, to the current footprint or to any heritage assets (as detailed in the summary of the listing provided) – they are simply important like for like repairs that are urgently required to ensure the safety and security of the building following the vehicle collision.”

South Holland District Council had been hoping to see the plans lodged – after having discussions with pub owner Samuel Smiths.
