A historic chapel in St Ives could soon be licensed to serve beer and wine under plans submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council.
Andrew Richard Jennings has applied to the authority for a premises licence, which, if granted, would allow him to run a bar from the Chapel of St Ledger – also known as the Chapel on the Bridge - three days a week.
The chapel, which is a Grade I-listed scheduled monument, dates back to the 15th century and is believed to have been built by the monks of Ramsey Abbey.
Over the course of its near 500-year history, the chapel has been used as a toll house and private accommodation before it was restored to its original use in the 1930s.
Regular services still take place in the building, which sits in the middle of the town’s historic bridge.

According to Mr Jennings’ application, the licence would allow him to run a bar between 6-10pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
The application will be considered by the district council’s licensing committee later this year, where a final decision will be made.
