In August 2015 it was noted that planning permission for residential conversion has been lodged. It appears that work on the building has already begun in advance of the permission being granted.

According to the Listed Buildings Register, the building dates from the early 19th century. So if the suggested opening date of about 1720 is correct, there must have been another building which preceded the current one.
