New lease of life for Etal pub
Work is set to start on the refurbishment of the Black Bull pub in Etal, which has been closed for the past couple of years.
Plans drawn up for Ford & Etal Estates by surveying and consultancy firm Sanderson Weatherall were handed over this week to Michael Richardson of M.T. Richardson Ltd as the appointed contractor. It is anticipated the pub will reopen in May. A lease was agreed late last year between the Estates and local men Michael Pickard and Marshall Muirhead.
