SKIPTON pub, The Craven, has been boarded up.

The pub, in Craven Street, is run by Thwaites breweries and the ground floor windows and doors were boarded up and made secure earlier this week.

A 'to let' sign remains outside with contact details for Thwaites although it is not known yet if the premises is to be sold or if another landlord will be installed at some point.

The brewery has been contacted for a comment.
