Plans to open the first micropub in the area have been approved.

Central Bedfordshire Council has granted planning permission for June and Stephen Topham to open The Old Transporter Ale House in Hitchin Road, Henlow Camp.

The site was a Blockbuster video store until May last year.

The plans are subject to conditions that development will commence in the next three years, and that no brewing will take place on the site.

The micropub will operate independently of major brewers, providing cask ales as their main product, alongside some bottled beers, lagers, wine, cider and ‘old style’ soft drinks.
