A petition has been set up to save a popular village pub which developers want to demolish.

Proposals would see the Boar’s Head in Barton, near Garstang, bulldozed but residents want the pub to stay.

The pub is a community hub. Let’s try and save our community and get our local back!

The public house is now closed and has been bought by applicants Barton NWL Properties Ltd with a view to redeveloping the building.

Christopher Jones, from Barton, set up the petition.

He said: “This pub has an historic value and apparently legend says that a boar terrorised the village and a person said whoever slays this boar can have my daughter’s hand in marriage.

“The pub is a community hub. Let’s try and save our community and get our local back!”

The petition, posted on the website charge.org, currently has 54 signatures.
