Campaigners have been refused an application to list an 18th Century mill building which was more recently used as a pub.

Members of Hallamshire Historic Buildings Society applied to English Heritage to list the disused Joseph Glover pub, on Station Road, Mosborough.

The request was made after a planning application was submitted to Sheffield Council to demolish the building, which dates back to 1776.

No redevelopment proposals have yet been put forward for the site – converted into a pub in the 1980s and named after a former miller.

Howard Greaves, of Hallamshire Historic Buildings Society, said: “It’s a real shame that this building could now be lost.

“It could have been converted into lovely apartments.”

Mr Greaves added: “The mill has an Eastern Counties character and to my knowledge there are no similar rural mill structures in Sheffield.”
