The Joseph Morton pub, in Louth has been recognised with an award for its renovation and enhancement of the character of the town.
The pub, which opened in June last year, is one of three projects in Louth given a prestigious Pride of Place award, which are awarded each year at the annual general meeting of Louth Civic Trust.
The recipients of the awards are nominated each year by civic trust members in the Lincolnshire town.
Louth Civic Trust is an independent local charity encouraging community pride and passion, for the history and identity of its buildings, streets and public places. It aims to protect and manage change in the town’s landscape and architectural heritage through
campaigning, education and action.
The trust’s chairman, James Lavarack, said: “The standard this year was very high. JD Wetherspoon has enhanced the building with its overall appearance which has a slightly contemporary twist.
“The pub has been recognised as being keen to promote Louth’s history, as it has many pictures and information boards inside.”
Emma Keeley (pictured), pub manager at the Joseph Morton, said: “It is great that the pub has been recognised, especially for the research which went in to the local history.”
