The former Horse & Barge Pub in Duke Street has been derelict longer than most can remember.
There was once a plan to develop it but when it was refused the owner failed to come back with a new plan.
Now this opportunity continues to go begging. If there was a will to rid the town of the Southampton Street shopfronts, you might think there would be some desire to get this much more central location into use.
This must have spent 30 years decaying, yet there seems little interest in doing anything about it.
