Pub chain JD Wetherspoon is inching closer to opening venues in both Huntingdon and St Ives.

A spokesman said that the company has submitted its heritage statement to Huntingdonshire District Council and is awaiting registration for the Huntingdon branch, which will be in the Old Post Office on George Street.

He added that it is finalising contracts for the St Ives venue, although he still could not confirm the chosen location.

He could also not give an estimate for the timescale for either of the projects.

However, The Hunts Post understands that the Huntingdon venue looks likely to open this winter, after originally having ambitions for a summer 
opening.

The company is also understood to want to link the 4,623 sqft Grade II-listed Old Post Office to the George Hall, which sits on the corner of the site, to create a single large pub and dining area covering about 3,500sq ft.

The plans would also include demolishing the former sorting office to create an outdoor patio and garden area. It is expected to create about 40 jobs.
