High Peak Borough Council is taking action to keep intruders out of the vandalised former Riverside Inn.

It has nailed notices on the fence of the one-time Woolley Bridge pub warning owners it will carry out work to make the building safe.

And that they could pick up the bill.

The one time Spread Eagle hit our headlines last month after we revealed how intruders had smashed down the front door to get in.

Once inside they had ripped security shutters from windows and damaged rooms.

Notice: The three letters issued by the council which are pinned to the fencing outside the former pub

The Chronicle stepped in after the building – on a gateway route to Glossop – started to become an eyesore.

On Friday the council pinned up the three notices addresses – to Laura Chan, Xiaoping Liang and ‘The Owner.’

The notes say that in the view of the council the building is not effectively secure against unauthorised entry.

Or is likely to become a danger to public health.

Work proposed by the council includes securing the ground floor doors and windows, first floor windows and any other openings that can be used to gain entrance.
