The Pub Could be the Hub!

Here's a photo I found of the Chamley Arms on Google.

Let's hope Warcop can take some inspiration from this video...

English Heritage list the Chamley as a Grade II Listed Building as follows:-

"House, cottage and barn, now an Inn; late C18/early C19 with later additions and alterations. Rendered rubble with rusticated quoins to former house/cottage. Graduated slate roof with stone and brick chimneys; ball finial to west end. 2 storeys, 8 bays overall. Former house/cottage has 2 panelled doors in rusticated surrounds; 3 sashes to ground floor and 4 above, all with glazing bars in stone surrounds; 3 similar sashes to 1st floor of former barn,above two C20 garage doors. Single-storey C20 addition to east end not included."


  1. Message from FOWP:

    Since the announcement that the pub is for sale to the village, it seems that imaginations have run wild about how to make the Chamley the hub of Warcop again. It's been quite exhilarating!

    Here are the first 20+ things on the list, and thank you to everyone who continues to show support. A public meeting will be called within the next two weeks if all goes well.
