Campaigners have claimed a historic victory in the fight to save a much-loved pub.

North East Derbyshire District Council’s planning committee unanimously refused proposals to convert The Angel Hotel on College Road in Spinkhill - after villagers made a passionate plea to save it.

The proposals, by developer AB Investments, would have seen The Angel converted into two houses with a small portion of the pub retained as a bar and two detached houses built in the garden. But it was thrown out as the pub is listed as the district’s first Asset of Community Value (ACV) – a scheme allowing groups to bid for assets sold in their area.
