Everyone loves a good pub but with so many closing across the country every day, we take a look back at lost and forgotten pubs in Peterborough. Some of the pubs have now been turned into restaurants or shops, others private homes and where some once stood, there is simply no trace at all. Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) have been so concerned at the number of pub closures across the country it has launched an initiative to protect 3,000 of them. Figures show 29 pubs are being lost every week across the UK and CAMRA has been mobilising its members in England to nominate their local pub as an Asset of Community Value (ACV) and offer advice and guidance to other community groups looking to do the same.
