A HISTORIC pub ravaged by a devastating fire has been put up for sale.

The Dymock Arms in Penley, which is Grade II listed and dates back to the 16th century, was hit by the blaze in January.

It suffered damage to the ground floor, first floor and roof, and part of the building’s timber frame was destroyed.

The iconic building is now for sale with Butters John Bee Commercial.

The Dymock is advertised as a pub set within large attractive grounds, covering a site area of 0.75 acres.

The agent say the property, which became a pub in 1843, is severely fire damaged, and there is no guide price – the vendor is open to offers.

The agents are recommending that potential buyers make their own inquiries to the local authority to make sure any proposed use is authorised in planning terms.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said after the fire that arson was to blame, adding there was 60 per cent fire damage to the building as well as water and smoke damage.

Two fire engines from Wrexham, one from Ellesmere and one from Whitchuch attended and the blaze which took about two hours to put out.
