Stained glass windows in an historic Wisbech pub are set to undergo repairs to restore them to their former glory.

The windows in the Elgood’s owned King’s Head pub on Old Market Place were taken out for repair work, and the holes boarded up, earlier this week and were not smashed as reported on social media websites.

Councillor Sam Hoy, who works at the pub, explained: “I can categorically say they have not been smashed. The windows are stained glass and about 200 years old. They were cracked and had a few blemishes in them, so they have been taken out for restoration work.

“It is a job requiring expertise so I am not sure how long it will take, but they will be returned and should be back to their previous splendour as soon as possible.”
