£3.8 million grant for the Fellowship Inn pub

A dilapidated pub in the South East of the capital is set to be saved thanks to a £3.8 million grant from the Lottery Heritage Fund.

The Fellowship Inn in Bellingham was once the training base for boxer Henry Cooper ahead of his 1963 fight with Muhammad Ali and has seen bands such as Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers grace the stage of its mainball room.

Plans for the project include the restoration of the cinema and a new microbrewery in the basement.
