Ripped Apart, For Offices

Published on 29 May 2005 in , , , , ,

I’d rather been hoping some knight in shining armour would turn up and change the King’s Head from being a boarded up mess, to being a really nice pub again. Stranger things have happened. Indeed it did happen in Chiswick recently where a Young’s pub was abruptly sold for shop use, then at the last minute, bought by someone else. But sadly 10 months after it was abruptly shut and boarded up, Go-Ahead have finally started tearing the place apart to make their offices.

So if you’re in Colliers Wood, and walking by, spare it a though, cos behind the hoardings, one of the most historic pub interiors in South West London, is being ripped apart, all because its owner, Young’s, had no vision.
