Spit and sawdust watering hole, The Vulcan, has been given a final chance to escape demolition. CADW (the historic environment service of the Welsh Assembly) has previously rejected applications to have the oldest pub in Wales listed as a protected building, but have welcomed subsequent applications should new information become available.
Campaigner Graham Craig has spent six months researching and compiling a seven page document outlining why The Vulcan should be listed as a protected building, and presented the application with 27 attachments, including letters of support from Lord Neil Kinnock, the National Trust, James Dean Bradfield, and Chair of the Arts Council for Wales, Dai Smith.
Campaigners have also submitted the 5000-name petition to the Petitions Committee at the National Assembly for Wales and will be presenting evidence to the Committee on Tues 17 March.
CADW have until the demolition date, set in June, to make a decision.
