Dear Sir/Madam,

Having just today driven past the Montague Arms, in Roehampton, I continue to be saddened at how it looks. I perhaps feel more upset than others, because I was born there in 1949. My late grandmother - suname of Coggan originally had the license, which she passed to her daughter, my mother Mrs Ruth Macey (nee Coggan). My family continued to run the pub until I was approx. 8 yrs old, when my father and mother decided to get out of the licensing business. My brother and I, Mum and Dad moved down the A3 to live in Claygate.

Obviously, everytime I pass Roehampton, I get quite upset, to see such a grand old building now looking more like a slum! If anbody can tell me what is likely to happen to the building, I would appriciate it. When I passed today, I saw a 'Foxtons' board up, saying that there would soon be flats there. I hope that does not mean that the building will be demolished, as I understand it, as it is a listed building, they can only covert, but NOT demolish it.

Regards,

Mick Macey
Now in Epsom

A property developer which illegally gutted one of the oldest buildings in Wandsworth has been ordered to restore it to its original state.

Carrington Sears Ltd took over the Montague Arms pub in Medfield Street, Roehampton, in October last year with the intention of turning the 17th-century Grade II listed building into flats.

However, the Bethnal Green-based company did not get the relevant planning permission and have now been issued with a listed building enforcement notice to restore the pub back to its original state by March 18.

Council leader Edward Lister said: "The Montague Arms is a very important historic building that has been a central focal point in Roehampton for centuries.

It is totally unacceptable for a developer to start interfering with a listed building in this way without any kind of consent or permission.

Carrington Sears will now be required to restore this listed building back to the way they found it.

The council confirmed they issued the notice, along with a separate notice to clean up the debris which has been left outside the building, on January 21.

However Adam Carter, manager at Carrington Sears Ltd, said he had not received it.

As far as I'm concerned no notice has been issued. We accept absolute responsibility for not having planning permission but maintain the reason we started work on the property was to protect the building, which was in a dilapidated condition when we took it over, from further damage.

If a notice has been issued, we will not contest it and will do our utmost to make sure the building is restored, he said.

If the developers fail to comply with the notice - which the council say was sent to all four of the company's addresses - they could face unlimited fines and its directors could face jail terms.

I managed the pub for 3 months in 2005. I am sorry to hear that it has closed. Yes it was old, but it had a lot of character. Can anyone tell me why it has closed.

Drove past this morning.
It's now closed.
There are massive metal shutters at most of the windows [or all], and the door.
Did the trade go to the Internet cafe next door?
