And finally, it’s not too late to save The Victoria
It seems these days it wouldn’t be the Pinboard without the news that one local pub is on the skids. And yesterday reader Luisa dropped us a line to report that The Victoria in Mornington Crescent has an application for conversion to residential. “This is such a shame as it’s the only non-Sports, non-music place around in the back streets,” she says, “with a great meeting space on the first floor for local groups.”
She continues: “So the Crown and Goose is going (I sit on the Camden Town Conservation Area Advisory Committee and we fought hard for that one), the Parr’s Head has converted (no loss in terms of a pub, but nevertheless gone for ever), The Neptune in Somers Town (which was supported and enjoyed by its local community); and the Victoria is next.”
But traditional pub enthusiasts will be pleased that it’s not too late for people to object here. The application number is 2013/0920/P.
