Cowbit Village Website - LAST UPDATE 22nd April 2014

The new Cowbit broadband upgrade is complete


Statement form OnLincolnshire:


We  have just had a further update from BT Openreach to confirm that the cabinet in Cowbit (MOULTON CHAPEL 2) is now ready for service (RFS); I have double checked on the BT wholesale availability checker which also states that FTTC is available in Cowbit.

Because BT's network is an open access network and regulated by OFCOM; BT are required to inform all internet service providers of the availability of services. This process can take up to 2 weeks.

Ye Olde Dun Cow

Ye Olde Dun Cow


As may would have seen on the Cowbit Village facebook group page that the Ye Olde Dun Cow has now been demolished by Market Homes. Many residents have expressed that they are not very happy with the building being pulled down and closing the path alongside the pub without notice or warning.


More photos are in the Village Photo Gallery

Ye Olde Dun Cow is still registered on the Assets of Community Value Register under the Localism Act 2011. Any development must first include a public house in the village, as stated by the SHDC Planning Department and Committee. The planned Brewer’s Fayre does not fulfil this requirement and the new planned Premier Inn will only increase the viability of a public house in Cowbit by an increased footfall in the area. The hope of Market Homes is to divide the residents of Cowbit and their argument will no doubt be “What Pub? There is no Asset”. Whilst demolishing Ye Olde Dun Cow, and the 500 years of history it held, Market Homes are also legally contesting the registering of Ye Olde Dun Cow as an Asset of Community Value. Market Homes do not want a pub there and they have no interest of putting a pub in the village. It is also important to note that there was no public Structural Engineers Report to say that the building was not structurally sound. On the contrary there was a report from a Structural Engineer in November 2012 stating that the building could be made safe pending development plans. This is, in the Campaign’s opinion, just an effort by Market Homes to make the site into a building site to make people believe that the fight is over. It is not.



As you all know, The Campaign has been working tirelessly, on behalf of Cowbit Village Residents and Friends, to save Ye Olde Dun Cow from development into housing. We now need your support, by way of donations, to raise a start-up fund of £500, which will enable us to attract additional funding to step up our efforts to re-instate the pub as a social hub for the village. The Campaign is currently funded by the Campaign Members.  Any additional financial help, no matter how big or small, would be thankfully received.  Please contact us for further details on


Amount Raised So Far £300.  Thank you
